They found the 35-year-old man — whose name is being withheld until extended family have been notified — dead in the basement.

Police: Redding man confronted by armed citizen at gas station after kidnapping woman

By Alayna Shulman
A Redding man beat a woman he knows and kidnapped her sister before being confronted by an armed citizen who noticed the victim was “in distress” at a nearby gas station, officers said.

Police said it all started shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday, when people began reporting that a man was fighting with two women on the lawn of a home on the 2000 block of Westwood Avenue.

Sgt. Todd Cogle said the suspect, 44-year-old Carl Dudley Hulsey, was gone by the time officers got to the scene, and one of the women he’d attacked told them he’d also assaulted her sister and driven off with her.

While searching the area, officers got a tip that Hulsey and the woman had been spotted at the nearby Win-River Mini-Mart and gas station, Cogle said.

As officers headed to the gas station, calls started coming in reporting a man there pointing a gun at another man, police said. Cogle said it turned out a citizen with a concealed-carry permit pulled his gun on Hulsey because he could tell the woman was there against her will, so Hulsey ran away through some fields.

Redding Police Sgt. Brian Torum said citizens don’t necessarily intervene with crimes that often, but in this case, it was clear that the woman needed help.

    The Leeds story is a suspicious death. Wonder how much the wife knows about the “rest of the story”?

    Armed citizen stops a dirtbag. Who’d a thunk?

    “…found a man in his yard….homeowner reportedly shot him.”

    Our very own VOV needs to give the congress critters lessons from the George Mason book.

    Lotsa bark in the little puppy pictured. I gotsa hidey place for it, if needed.

    Is Para as a double stack 1911 still being made?

  3. David says:

    Not as the Carry, it is a single stack. Pretty much limited to big boy sizes in double stack .45s. Oodles of 9m and some .380 double stacks about the size of the Para shown.
