WOMAN KIDNAPPED IN YUCCA VALLEY, BEATEN AND HELD IN A CAR FOR 3 DAYS

A Yucca Valley man was arrested Thursday, accused of kidnapping and assaulting a woman, holding her in his car for three days. Sheriff’s investigators say the victim said she was camping and met David Graham, 36, Sunday, March 12, who convinced her to get into his car. Once in the car, he held her captive for three days, slamming her head into the car’s window, hitting her with a metal flashlight, and pointing a gun at her, telling her he would kill her if she left. Wednesday, deputies had contact with Graham and the victim two times, but she said she was too afraid to say anything to them. At about 11 p.m. Wednesday night, the woman escaped from the car and ran for help to a residence near Sunnyslope Drive and Palm Avenue in Yucca Valley. She was taken to Hi-Desert Medical Center for treatment of her injuries. About 2:15 a.m. Thursday morning, Deputy Adrian Garcia located Graham in his vehicle near the intersection of Kickapoo Trail and Highway 62 in Yucca Valley. Garcia searched Graham’s vehicle and found an airsoft pistol. David Graham was arrested for investigation of kidnapping, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, and making criminal threats. He was booked into the Morongo Basin Jail with his bail set at $250,000.
