CINCINNATI -- A man police accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend over the weekend was booked into jail Wednesday morning, according to online records.

On Thursday, Marquez Holimon appeared in Hamilton County court; he pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and felonious assault. He was given a $150,000 bond.

Holimon, 28, was wanted on charges since Sunday. Police considered him to be "armed and dangerous."


The kidnapping was first reported as an abduction by gunpoint at about 5 p.m. Sunday on Hillside Avenue in Riverside. The suspect fired two shots as he was taking the victim, Lt. Steve Saunders said.

Surveillance video shows Holimon arriving, assaulting the victim multiple times, firing a gun and forcing her into the minivan, Sgt. Lakisha Gross said Sunday.

"There were numerous minor children out during this time," she said. "As far as we know, he still has the weapon on him at this time."

Cincinnati police said Holimon is the victim's ex-boyfriend.
