Deputies say a man suspected of kidnapping a woman used an ATM card with his name on it to pop open a lock at her Wyoming home, and then left the card behind.

Sweetwater County authorities say 20-year-old Martin Joseph Adams was arrested last week on suspicion of kidnapping, battery and burglary.

Authorities say the woman and her boyfriend were sleeping when Adams allegedly broke in, fought with the man and then hoisted the screaming woman onto his shoulder and left.

Investigators say they tracked Adams to his residence where they found him and the woman, who had suffered severe bruises.
