Hostages escape during nap time

September 13, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Two newlyweds held hostage in their eastern Kansas home escaped unharmed when the man holding them captive fell asleep after they gave him pillows and a blanket, authorities and family members said.

Jesse Dennis Dimmick, 23, was shot and injured when confronted by officers as they stormed the one-story ranch-style house in Dover, a tiny town about 15 miles west of Topeka. Police said that Dimmick, wanted in connection with a homicide in Colorado and burglaries in three states, crashed a stolen car into the couple's front yard after leading police on a chase.
