An alleged stalker has been arrested after police claim he drove to his former coworker's home and tried to kidnap her.

Police officials said they were called to a Tulsa, Oklahoma, home on Friday (local time) after Justin Arthur-Ray Davis allegedly attempted to kidnap the woman as she left for work with her husband.

The Tulsa Police Department claimed Davis had been stalking his former coworker for more than a month following his resignation from their workplace.

The woman had made reports of Davis sitting outside her apartment and leaving candy and food on her doorstep, police said.

On Friday, the woman and her husband saw Davis sitting outside their home in his truck, officers said. 

Davis then allegedly got out of his truck with a gun and ran toward the couple, who darted back inside their apartment. 

Officers said Davis shot through the front door and a bullet hit the husband in his hand.

Davis then allegedly forced himself into the apartment, grabbed the woman and dragged her down the stairs.

Police said he assaulted her along the way and neighbours heard the scuffle and called 911.

A resident told police Davis allegedly choked and punched the woman before firing two shots into the air.

When police arrived, he allegedly fled in his car. He was arrested a short time later following a car accident.

"Davis was transported to the hospital for a laceration to the head then booked into Tulsa County. Officers recovered the gun and ammo," the Tulsa Police Department said.
