CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- A man was taken into custody Thursday morning following an incident outside the Zaxby's restaurant on Tim Price Way in Chesterfield. The man, according to police, tried to abduct a woman in the parking lot Wednesday night.

Marquise L. Bailey, 30, of Richmond, was arrested and charged with abduction.

The woman, a Zaxby's employee, was helping the man carry food to his vehicle at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to police.

"Once the items were placed in the man's vehicle, he grabbed the employee's wrist and asked her to get into the trunk of his vehicle," a Chesterfield Police spokesperson said."The employee was able to get away from the man and go inside the restaurant for help."

The man drove away in a dark-colored newer model sedan.
