She refused and Aden allegedly got out of the car, choked and hit her and forced her into the car.While he was walking around the car to get in the driver’s seat, the woman got out of the car and started running away on the shoulder of the road. Aden allegedly grabbed her purse and choked her again. Just as this was happening, a CHP officer pulled up and Aden ran back to the car and drove away. The victim told the officer what happened and had her get into the passenger seat of the police car. The officer drove after Aden and initiated a high-risk driving procedure that caused Aden to stop.
Another officer pulled up and Aden was taken into custody. Aden was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail on charges of taking or driving a stolen vehicle, kidnapping, battery and robbery.
The vehicle Aden was driving was reported stolen in Arizona.
