Kidnapped Woman Frees Herself After One Month

On March 1, Eula Chiles from Tulsa Oklahoma, was abducted by ex-boyfriend Velzo Harrison and handcuffed to a bed in his apartment. After using a pair of scissors to free her feet and hands, Chiles escaped on April 8. Harrison is now in jail after keeping her imprisoned for the last month and routinely beating her with an electrical cord. Last fall, Harrison was charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
