GREAT FALLS - Chris Rolfs, 32 years old, is facing several charges in Great Falls after allegedly kidnapping a man on Tuesday.
A probable cause affidavit states that Great Falls police officers were called to the Franklin Apartments on 1st Avenue SW on Tuesday morning after a man said that he had been kidnapped at knife-point by Rolfs.
The victim told police that he was walking to work along 10th Avenue South, Rolfs walked up to him and asked if he could help him with his car.
The victim agreed, and they walked to Rolfs' car; the victim said that's when Rolfs pulled out a knife and threatened him, and forced him into the car.
Rolfs then began driving around Great Falls for more than an hour, and the victim described Rolfs' mannerisms as those of someone who is "high on meth."
During the time they were in the car, Rolfs allegedly threatened to kill the victim several times, with the knife, and at one point forced the victim to feel how sharp the blade was.
The victim escaped when Rolfs pulled in to the Franklin Apartments parking lot.
When interviewed by police after being taken into custody, Rolfs admitted that he "enlisted" a male to drive with him in his car, and also admitted to making "people" feel how sharp his knife blade was.
The victim was not injured during the incident.
Rolfs is scheduled to be charged with kidnapping, felony assault with a weapon, and criminal possession of dangerous drugs.
