Interstate Captive



Sheriff's deputies in Eau Claire County say they interviewed a Whitehall woman the Wisconsin State Patrol said was held against her will and determined she had not been abducted.  
 
The sheriff's department was notified by the State Patrol Tuesday afternoon that troopers were trying to find a woman that had contacted authorities for help. Deputies found the 19-year-old Whitehall woman locked in the bathroom of a gas station near Eau Claire. They interviewed her and a 32-year-old Edina man who had picked her up. Authorities say the two met online and were headed for the Mall of America.
 
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the man changed those plans and began caressing the woman. She told him she needed to use a restroom and then called for help. The man was cited for disorderly conduct.
