Police searched the area and found a vehicle with Virginia a license plate near the house. Detectives later found out the car had been stolen.

As police continued to search for Martin they received a report that he'd forcibly taken another vehicle from someone else in the area.

Paramedics took the victim to a local hospital where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Greensboro police, as well as deputies from Guilford, Rockingham and Alamance Counties helped catch the suspect.
