  1. UNNAMED SUSPECT

    Alleged Offender in Custody; Seeking Similar Cases.

    On January 3, 2009, at approximately 4:00 p.m., a white male picked-up a 44 year-old white female at a small casino and offered to take her to a drinking establishment. While driving to the location, the victim turned her head to light a cigarette and as she turned back toward the front, the suspect placed a knife to her throat.

    The alleged offender instructed the victim to stay calm or he would hurt her. He then produced a three foot long white zip-tie fashioned in a circle and placed it over her head, to cinch her neck to the passenger’s seat headrest.

    While driving to a secluded area in the desert, the alleged offender groped the woman’s breast and told her he would give her pills to help her relax. Once in the desert, he used wire cutters to remove the zip-tie and had the victim throw it out the window. As they continued to travel further into the desert, they came across a police vehicle heading in the opposite direction and were stopped. As they approached the police vehicle, the offender waved and told the victim to tell the police that she was his wife. Subsequently, the offender was arrested for kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, and attempted sexual assault.

    During searches of his person and vehicle, diazepam (valium), carisoprobo (soma) and omeparzaole (stomach antacid), a loaded .38 caliber revolver and ammunition, several knives, large white zip-ties, camping equipment, binoculars, Tojan-Enz condoms, Gallo wine, Crown Royal, and a large industrial strength black trash bag were recovered as potential evidence.

    Background investigation revealed that the offender was involved in child sexual abuse involving pre-teen female relatives. He has lived or visited Alaska, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, and Utah. The offender has worked as a painter, a general contractor, and a pilot driver for heavy equipment.
