Police say they've arrested the man wanted for abducting, robbing, and tying up a woman in the middle of the day.

That's not the only crime he's accused of committing.

It didn't take detectives long to narrow down their search - and arrest James Clifton Pree, Jr.

He's accused of doing some scary things!

Police say he forced a woman into the passenger seat of her own car Sunday afternoon at a shopping plaza off Holland Road.

They say Pree got behind the wheel, drove her to an ATM, and forced her to withdraw cash.

He wasn't finished with her yet, according to police. They say that's when he took her to another shopping center - tied her up - and left her there, terrified.

The victim gave a detailed suspect description, which led investigators to Pree.

Detectives say he's also the guy who carjacked a woman back in August of last year and then robbed a convenience store.

The incident started on Snowdrift Circle, which is near Holland Road.

Today, James Clifton Pree, Jr. is now facing several charges in both cases.
