Jail records show a Spartanburg man who deputies said escaped from home detention in October is back in custody.
The Spartanburg County Detention Center's online records show 32-year-old Ashley Wrenix was arrested Tuesday about 4 p.m. on an escape charge and several bench warrants.
Deputies said Wrenix was placed on home detention following his Oct. 10 arrest on charges of kidnapping and criminal domestic violence. He was accused of holding his girlfriend against her will when she tried to move out and break up with him.
Deputies said a woman called 911 from inside a Cannon's Campground Road home claiming to be hurt and held against her will.
When they talked to the woman, deputies said she was planning to move out of the home because she wanted to break up with Wrenix. The report said when his girlfriend tried to move out, he kidnapped, attacked and threatened to kill her.
Following his initial arrest and escape on Oct. 26, deputies said they tracked Wrenix to the Lakeview Manor area of Spartanburg County using GPS. Once there, they only found his tracking device inside a vehicle parked on Thurgood Marshall Road.
Deputies said they received a tip that Wrenix was in the area, locating and arresting him without incident at the Sunset Inn on Boiling Spring Road.
