Brookville Man Jailed for Kidnapping

A Brookville man is in jail for kidnapping a woman at gunpoint.

Police say they got a report at around 7 o’clock last night that a woman was being kidnapped, but she was able to jump out of the vehicle and run to a nearby store for help.

39-year-old Shawn Whitenight fled the scene and police found him at his home, where he kept them at bay until around 1 o’clock this morning when he surrendered.

He is charged with felony counts of kidnapping, aggravated assault and terroristic threats as well as a number of misdemeanors. His bail is set at $150,000.
