Diego Glay, 23, was arrested by Memphis police on May 14 after a brief chase and charged with kidnapping and evading arrest.
In a Facebook post, the Memphis Police Department said officers had responded to the incident, which took place at a KFC branch on Winchester Road on Sunday.
Officials were called after the woman left a note at KFC asking for help, Fox13 Memphis reported.
The KFC worker who found the note called police after the woman left the restaurant with Mr Glay.
The employee reported a possible kidnapping and gave them the note and a description of the man and woman.
“Officials were informed that a woman had written a note asking for help. The woman who wrote the note was still on the premises, accompanied by a man. When officers approached the couple, the man ran away on foot. After a brief chase, he was arrested and identified as Diego Glay,” the Facebook post said.
Police said the woman came from out of state to meet Mr Glay, who was her boyfriend.
