BLANCHESTER, Ohio (WLWT/WDTN)One man was arrested after a woman was found trapped in a hole inside a shed at a Blanchester home Wednesday, police said.

Police in Blanchester say a 30-year-old-woman was reported missing by her mother around 1:30 Wednesday morning. Officers responded and searched the area but did not find her.

Police responded to a home in the 100 block of Central Avenue home at 4:00 a.m. after a neighbor reported hearing cries coming from a shed on the property. When police arrived, they found a woman inside a hole that had been covered with wood and heavy objects, in a yard belonging to Dennis Dunn, 45, they said.

Police say the hole was about 3.5 feet deep and 2-feet wide. They say the pit was covered with wood and heavy objects to hold the lid in place.

Police say the woman appeared to be suffering a sezure when they found her and she was taken to a hospital by ambulance. Offices observed no obvious signs of physical trauma to the woman.

Officers stationed outside the home with guns drawn for four hours, awaiting SWAT, before Dunn walked out the front door “like he was going for a stroll,” police said.

Dunn was charged with one count of kidnapping and taken to the Clinton County Jail.
