In the criminal complaint, a Cabell County Sheriff's Deputy said a woman reported she had been separated from her estranged husband since 2010, when, on July 30, 2012, he arrived at her residence in the 7100 block of Beech Drive. The woman said the man forced his way into her home, and physically abused her and her daughter, according to the complaint.
The man took the woman's cellphone and forced her and her daughter to take him to Kentucky, where they stopped at a gas station, according to the complaint. That was when the woman asked the man to get a wet paper towel from the gas station, and she fled the area in her vehicle when he exited it, according to the complaint.
Downs' bond was set at $170,000.
