Waco, Tx (FOX 44) – Waco Police say a woman who was held captive in a home over the weekend was able to get free on Monday, and then seek help with a 60-year-old man now in custody in the case.
Police spokesperson Cierra Shipley said officers got the call at 8:40 a.m. Monday from the 3300 block of Kendall Lane. Police met with the woman at the scene, who told the story of being brutally held against her will. She managed to escape through the back of the house when the man holding her took a dog out front. She ran to a neighbor’s house with the neighbor then calling 9-1-1.
An arrest affidavit stated the victim told police the suspect picked her up in San Antonio Thursday, then took her to his house at 3336 Kendall Lane. The affidavit stated the victim told officers he had told her he would harm her family if she did not go with him and that she believed he would harm or kill them. She said things were very tense Thursday and Friday at the house and that he took an unknown narcotic substance and became “out of control.”
The affidavit quoted the victim as saying that over Saturday, Sunday and Monday she was repeatedly sexually assaulted and assaulted with injury. She said she had her head shoved through a door, was hit numerous times and choked to the point where she would pass out. She said her teeth were super glued to try to keep her from yelling.
After the man finally took her dog outside, she escaped through the back and ran to the neighbor’s house.
The man fled after she escaped, and was not present when police arrived. Officers were later able to find Thomas Wayne Fauver in his 2003 GMC pickup truck in the 2400 block of Kendall Lane. He was taken into custody and booked into the McLennan County Jail on first-degree felony kidnapping charges on Tuesday.
He remained in jail on Wednesday, with bond set at $100,000.
