TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A Georgia man is facing felony charges in Tallahassee after being accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's house and assaulting her before kidnapping her. 

Jordan Lewis, 26, was arrested on Thursday by the Leon County Sheriff's Office.

According to court documents, Lewis broke in to the victim's home on Nov. 25 and assaulted her before forcing the victim into her own car. The report says Lewis drove them to his car then back to her home.

Once there, Lewis took the victim's laptop and tablet and continued to physically abuse her.

Investigators write that the victim had injuries consistent with her testimony. Threatening voicemails from Lewis to the victim were also taken in as evidence during the initial investigation.

A few days later, investigators learned of another incident at Academy Sports.

Probable cause documents say Lewis and the victim were arguing on the way to the business, the argument turning physical when Lewis took the victim's cellphone, keys and bank card away from her.

In fear that Lewis was going to hit her, the victim went into Academy Sports to call 911. Investigators write that surveillance video showed Lewis trying to stop her from going into the store as he followed her inside.

Once inside, Lewis threw the victim's belongings on the ground and left the store.

When investigators searched the victim's home, they were able to find additional evidence that supported her testimony.

During the search, the victim revealed that Lewis sexually assaulted her when he broke in and requested to have a sexual assault kit completed.

As a result of the investigation, Lewis was charged with battery, burglary with assault, kidnapping/false imprisonment, kidnapping to inflict bodily harm, and two counts of threatening a victim.

Lewis is in the Leon County Detention Center on a $111,000 bond.
