Man Arrested on the Mountain for Kidnapping/Sexual Assault
After being arrested on Friday, a local man faces multiple felony charges.
On Tuesday afternoon, twenty-nine-year-old Jensen Frandsen Winkler made his initial court appearance after being arrested at a Crimson Dawn Road residence on Casper Mountain.
Winkler is charged with four felonies including two counts of first-degree sexual assault, kidnapping, and aggravated assault.
Details of the incident are limited as court documents are sealed by Judge Steve Brown until the case reaches District Court.
However, it was released that Winkler allegedly held a nineteen-year-old woman against her will at gunpoint.
Winkler’s bond was set at seven-hundred and fifty thousand dollars because of his limited ties to the community and the severity of the charges.
A guilty conviction could land Winkler in prison for life.
Winkler currently awaits his preliminary hearing in the Natrona County Detention Center.
