BENTON COUNTY, ARK. --- A Walmart employee calls police after a woman hands her a noted inside a local store saying she'd been kidnapped. Two men are behind bars facing numerous charges.

According to a police report, Yulu Zhang told officers she was walking to her Dallas, TX. apartment when her ex-boyfriend, Michael Lee Roberts, 24, attacked her from behind. Zhang said he threatened to kill her unless she cooperated with him and his friend, Theron Alan Vance.

Zhang previously filed charges against Roberts in Texas and he may have been trying to keep her away from those court proceedings out of fear he'd be kicked out of the National Guard.

Both men are currently being held in the Benton County jail.
