DEFUNIAK SPRINGS-- A DeFuniak Springs man is behind bars charged with kidnapping.

Walton County Sheriff's Deputies arrested 51 year old Robbie Randall Skaggs Friday night at the Walmart store in DeFuniak Springs.

They say Skaggs had been holding a woman against her will at her own home since Wednesday, and had been torturing her.

When she went to the restroom at Walmart she asked someone to call 911.

Deputies say she appeared to have been physically and mentally abused, with bruising and cuts caused by a hatchet and a machete.

Besides kidnapping, Skaggs is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
