Abducted Pa. Woman Home After Rescue; Man Arrested

A woman abducted off a Philadelphia street returned home early Thursday, hours after authorities said they found her safe outside Baltimore and arrested the man who grabbed her. Carlesha Freeland-Gaither's relieved relatives said they brought her back to her mother's home in the city after reuniting late Wednesday at a Maryland hospital. Law enforcement agents spotted the 22-year-old nursing assistant and the man Wednesday in a car with a broken-out back window in Jessup, Maryland. They arrested suspect Delvin Barnes after he stepped out of the car. Police said Freeland-Gaither had some injuries but was generally doing OK. Authorities said, Delvin Barnes was being held Thursday on an unrelated Virginia warrant alleging attempted capital murder, assault and malicious injury with acid, explosives or fire, and he would face federal charges in the Philadelphia abduction.
