Montgomery County police are searching for a man who they say assaulted and kidnapped an acquaintance Monday night in the Dickerson area.

Rickley Joshua Senning, 24, is charged with false imprisonment, kidnapping, auto theft and two counts of second-degree assault, police said.

About 9:40 p.m. Monday, patrol officers responded to a call for an assault at the Harris Teeter along Darnestown Road. The officers met the victim, a 53-year-old woman, who said that Senning had assaulted her two times that evening, police said. Senning then took her car, which he crashed nearby.

The group Crime Solvers of Montgomery County, which can be reached at 866-411-TIPS, is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest of the suspect. Police are asking anyone who knows the whereabouts of Senning to call 911.
