    Police in Merrimack, New Hampshire, have arrested a man accused of kidnapping a woman and holding her hostage at gunpoint at his home.

    Police received a call Tuesday night at 10:08 from the victim, who told police that she taken against her will as she was walking by James High, 49, of 12 Brookfield Drive.

    The victim had a protective order against High, who she said forcefully placed her in his truck.
