An Austell man, Jose Cortez, was arrested last Thursday by Cobb Police and charged with aggravated assault with intent to murder, kidnapping and cruelty to children.

Police say that on Wednesday, Cortez abducted a woman and her son, grabbing her and holding needlenose pliers to her neck. Cortez repeatedly told the woman he was going to kill her and the 5-year-old child.

Cortez was arrested the following day. He is still in custody at the Cobb Jail. He lives on Six Flags Road in Austell.
