A resident of Crestline alleges that she was kidnapped on June 12 by an acquaintance who arrived at her home, asked to speak with her in his vehicle, and then drove her to a dirt road behind the hospital where he purportedly assaulted her.

The 56-year-old suspect’s whereabouts are still unknown, and the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Station has not yet disclosed his identity.

According to the victim, while behind the hospital, the suspect ordered her to take off her sweatshirt. He was screaming at her that he hated her.

The victim further claims that the suspect allegedly grabbed her by the neck, choked her and told her that he would kill her. She said that she attempted three times to get out of the van, but the suspect repeatedly grabbed her by the hair and pulled her back into the van.

Later, the suspect reportedly told her to get out of the vehicle, to take off her sweatshirt and to walk down the hill. The sheriff’s report does not mention the sweatshirt again, but states that the victim walked down the hill as the suspect followed alongside in the vehicle. The victim said that she could not get away at that point.

Ultimately, the suspect drove the victim home, asked her for a cigarette and left, the report states. As soon as she got home, the victim called 9-1-1 and said that she wanted to report the kidnapping.

According to a report from the Twin Peaks station, the victim has bruises on her neck, but she declined medical attention.

The suspect has previous convictions for inflicting spousal injury, sales of non-narcotic drugs and commercial burglary. He currently is on probation under the Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) program for possession of drugs as a result of California Assembly Bill 109.

As part of Governor Jerry Brown’s Realignment Plan (Assembly Bill 109) to comply with a U.S. Supreme Court decision requiring the state to lower its prison population, offenders with non-violent, non-sexual and non-serious convictions will serve reduced sentences in county jails and be placed on local supervision through county probation.
