QUINCY — A Quincy man is in the Adams County Jail after deputies from the Adams County Sheriff’s Department responded to a domestic abuse call Wednesday night.

Deputies were called at 11:05 p.m. Wednesday to 428 Timber Ridge Lane, east of Quincy off State Street. Deputies learned a female resident had contacted a third party and requested police assistance. Upon arrival, deputies determined the woman was being held against her will and the victim of domestic battery.

Deputies forced entry into the residence. The suspect, Eric Kiture, 48, of Quincy, jumped out of a window and attempted to run, but he was arrested after a short foot chase and taken into custody.

Both Kiture and the woman were taken to Blessing Hospital for treatment. Kiture then was taken to the Adams County Jail and charged with aggravated domestic battery and unlawful restraint.

The Illinois Department of Corrections also issued a parole hold on Kiture.
