WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Police have arrested a man they believe is responsible for kidnapping and robbing a woman at knife point last week.

Kyle Stephen Ross, of Winston-Salem, was arrested on Wednesday and taken into custody with a bond set at $350,000.

Detectives obtained a warrant for the arrest of Ross for robbery with a dangerous weapon and first degree kidnapping on Tuesday.

Police said the incident happened shortly before 1:30 p.m. last Tuesday in a parking lot at 284 Summit Square Blvd.

Police said the suspect approached the 29-year-old victim and handed her a religious pamphlet.

Shortly later, the suspect allegedly approached the victim’s vehicle with a knife, opened her driver’s side door and forced his way inside.

The victim was forced to drive to an automatic teller machine and withdraw money, police said.

The suspect eventually got out the vehicle in the 3500-block of North Patterson Avenue.

The victim was not injured.

Ross is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 5.
