ASHLAND, OH (WOIO) - A woman called 911 Tuesday morning saying Shawn Grate abducted her and he was in the bedroom with her at that moment.

The woman, who hasn't been identified, whispered as she talked with the Ashland police dispatcher. "I've been abducted."

She said Grate was sleeping and she was able to get his phone. She told the dispatcher she was being held in a house near the laundromat. It was a yellow house on left, "I thinks its abandoned." The home was at 363 Covert Court.

"Please hurry," she told the dispatcher.

Dispatcher: "Can you go to the bathroom?"
Woman: "No, I'm tied up."

She said he had a Taser gun and that she was "a little injured" and had been bleeding.

She described the suspect before the dispatcher asked her about getting out.

Dispatcher: "If you think you can get out, you need to get out."
Woman: "Not unless they were right here. He can catch me, he's strong."

The woman was afraid she was going to wake him. At one point, there is 8 minutes of silence as she thought she was in trouble.
