A woman was tied up and beaten inside her own home Friday night, and then her car was stolen.

Ft. Mitchell Police issued an alert over the weekend asking for help locating the suspect Scott Guy Wilson, 47. He was later located in Pendleton County but fled from police and then shot himself.

Police said that Wilson waited inside a home on Reserve Drive on Friday and when the victim returned, he tied her up, beat her for fifteen minutes, threatened to kill her, and then stole her car.

According to WLWT, which spoke to the police department, Wilson dated the victim's daughter and had been told to move out by Sunday, possibly prompting the attack.

The vehicle was later located in Cincinnati.
