PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Phoenix police say a man is in custody after a possible kidnapping at a motel off I-17 early Tuesday morning.

Police were called out to the Knights Inn off I-17 and McDowell Road after a woman told dispatchers that she was taken by a man who was still inside the room. When police arrived, the man refused to come out. Officers at that point obtained a warrant and got inside to arrest him.

Details about what led up to the incident are still under investigation. No other information was immediately released.
