Man from Springfield Arrested, Accused of Kidnapping Woman Using a Chainsaw

A man from Springfield is facing multiple charges after investigators say he kidnapped a woman by threatening her with a chainsaw.

Springfield Police say Roy Flores went to a home along North Rogers in April of this year, using the chainsaw to force his way into the house, but the female victim wasn’t there.

She arrived home about an hour later, at which point Flores returned and threatened the woman in order to abduct her.

He is charged with first-degree burglary, kidnapping and unlawful use of weapon.
