DURANT, Okla. & DENTON, Tex. -- A man police say kidnapped his girlfriend is now in custody. Durant Police say Calvin Sterling, 19, took his 18-year-old girlfriend, Janet Medina of Durant, to Denton, Texas.

Authorities report that Medina's younger brother was present when Sterling showed up Wednesday morning at her house and forced her into the car in the 200 block of East Texas Street in Durant.

Sterling faces evading arrest charges in Denton as well as a kidnapping charge in Durant.
