Man Arrested After Holding Female Hostage

Abilene, Texas – On Thursday, February 24, 2023, at 7:30 p.m. Police responded to a home in the 2400 block of Fannin St. in North Abilene. A calling party reported that a male was holding a female at a home at gunpoint and against her will.

The 32-year-old female known to the homeowner had gone to the home of 31-year-old Christian Campos earlier in the day. Later in the evening, an altercation began between Campos and the female. At some point, the female had wanted to leave his home but was not allowed by Campos. The female texted a friend who then called police.

Responding officers spoke with Campos, who had exited the home. This allowed the female to escape the home and into police protective custody.

Campos was arrested and charged with First Degree Felony Aggravated Kidnapping, State Jail Felony Evading Arrest, and Third Degree Felony Evading Arrest/Detention. He was transported to the Taylor County Jail. The female was unharmed. This investigation is ongoing.
