TRUCKEE, Calif. ­— Police have apprehended a man who evaded authorities for two days and is suspected of multiple felonies, including kidnapping and domestic abuse.

The Truckee Police Department arrested Corbin Lee Nunnally, 30, on Saturday, after pulling him from a Greyhound bus that was heading for Sacramento.

Reno Police Department officials informed TPD investigators that Nunnally had boarded the bus; authorities pulled it over at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday on westbound Interstate 80 near Hirschdale Road.

Roughly eight vehicles from the California Highway Patrol and TPD responded; Nunnally was arrested without incident, police said.

The search for Nunnally began Thursday when TPD was dispatched to the Gateway Shopping Center in Truckee around 5 p.m., following reports of a woman in distress and possibly in need of help.

Police said Nunnally fled into a nearby subdivision, leaving the female behind, and he was able to evade police.

Nunnally was booked Saturday afternoon into the Nevada County Truckee Jail on felony charges of kidnapping, dissuading a victim from reporting a crime with threats, burglary, and criminal threats, and a misdemeanor charge of child endangerment.

His bail was set at $100,000.

Nunnally will likely face charges in the state of Nevada pending the conclusion of the California charges.
