A 22-year-old woman could be charged with kidnapping after police say she jumped into a driver's van, threatened him, and demanded he take her to Tulsa.

On July 20, the victim was driving a company van and had stopped at the intersection of Stanton L. Young and Lincoln in Oklahoma City. Police say that's when Latasha Hamilton, a patient at nearby OU Medical Center, opened the driver's side door and crawled over the victim.

The victim told police Hamilton jammed something, possibly a syringe, against the right side of his neck and said, "Take me to Tulsa."

The victim said he feared for his life, but he just drove around the area for a while until he was stopped by an officer with the OU Health Science Center Police Department at the intersection of Phillips and Stanton L. Young.

The officer arrested Hamilton. After she was released from medical care, Hamilton was booked into Oklahoma County jail on counts of kidnapping and robbery by force or fear.
