The Hillsborough County and Citrus County sheriff’s offices are asking for help in locating a man they say is connected to the battery and kidnapping of a woman who escaped at the Inverness Citgo this week.

The two law enforcement agencies are looking for Cody Jackson, 32.

The agencies are not saying much about the case, identifying it as an open investigation. Anyone knowing where Jackson can be found is asked to call law enforcement at 813-247-8200.

“This case is an active investigation being worked jointly with our Major Crimes Unit and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office,” the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office posted.

“The incident started in Seffner, Florida, and the victim was able to get away from the suspect in Citrus County, at the Main Street Citgo, located at 415 W. Main Street, Inverness,” the posting said.

“This case involves a known suspect and our case is being worked in tandem with Hillsborough’s. No further information is being released at this time due to this being an active case and working in conjunction with the other agency. More information will be provided when available,” the posting said.
