Father and daughter allegedly kidnap, rob and rape woman


A father and daughter had been arrested in California earlier this week after police say they kidnapped a lady at gunpoint in Las Vegas and held her captive for nearly every week in Southern California, the place they raped, sexually assaulted and in the end left her to die within the desert north of Los Angeles.

Kern County Sheriff's Office said they received a call around 5 a.m. Wednesday from military personnel who found the victim near the entrance of the Edwards Air Force Base. It was not clear how long she had been there.

Hernandez said the father and daughter knew the victim but did not provide a motive for the attack and said no ransom was demanded. It could not quickly be determined if the pair experienced legal professionals yet who could discuss on their behalf.The female, who is in her 40s, was kidnapped in North Las Vegas on October 30, Hernandez mentioned."It is at gunpoint, it is by pressure".

Because the victim was moved across state lines, the case could possibly move to the federal court.The FBI is investigating, alongside Los Angeles County and North Las Vegas police. They are accused of sexually assaulting her on Sunday.They also accused of robbing her at ATMs on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, according to court docket documents.

"It's a vicious situation", Hernandez said.

They have been identified as 54-year-old Stanley Lawton and 22-year-old Shaniya Poche-Lawton.

The two reportedly abducted the woman at a location in Las Vegas while armed with semi-automatic handguns.

"She's very lucky to be alive", Hernandez said.

They allegedly beat her, sexually assaulted her and brought her to an ATM, forcing her to withdraw money. KCSO assisted in getting the woman to a local hospital in Los Angeles County.

Lawton and Poche-Lawton had been jailed on bail of $four.five million and $3.five million, respectively, in accordance to the Los Angeles County district attorney's place of work.

Stanley Lawton, 54, and his daughter, 22, were arrested Wednesday afternoon and early in the morning on Thursday, both without any incident.

As indicated by prison records, the senior Lawton is being held on $4.5 million bails, while his little girl is being held in a different position on $1 million bonds as they anticipate a November 12 court appearance. "It's at gunpoint, it's by force - that victim is then transported across state line, held in a house inside of a room for at least a week".
