Kyle McCabe Martin, 20, was arrested Tuesday on recommended charges of aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, burglary, felony theft and conspiracy.

The 95-year-old woman was found bound with duct tape in the trunk of a vehicle that was impounded by Casper police on Tuesday. She had multiple cuts on her head and face, and was taken to Wyoming Medical Center.

The victim told police that two men had hit her in the head with a pistol.

Police say the victim is now in stable condition.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, and surrounding law enforcement agencies are assisting with the investigation.

The incident stemmed from an investigation by the Casper Police Department into a number of recent vehicle thefts and burglaries, Lt. Jeremy Tremel told reporters on Wednesday.

According to an affidavit on Martin, a Casper detective saw a white vehicle pull into the east parking lot at Eastridge Mall at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The vehicle reportedly entered the parking lot and stopped next to a black Jeep SUV before a male exited the vehicle. The detective recognized the male as Kyle Martin, who was a suspect in recent burglaries and vehicle thefts.

Detectives and patrol officers approached the vehicle and ordered Martin to not move. Instead, Martin got back into the vehicle and took off, leading officers on a pursuit through Casper and into Evansville, where the vehicle got stuck and Martin ran for it.

Officers arrested Martin, and the suspect vehicle was sealed and taken to the Casper Police Department.

In an initial interview, Martin told police he had been driving a stolen Silverado earlier in the day and had parked it at Fox Hill Apartments. Martin then began driving the white vehicle.

Martin said he got the keys from a friend, who Martin knew had stolen the vehicles.

Martin allegedly admitted to using keys he got from another person to try to enter a residence on Jim Bridger in order to steal computers. Martin got the keys from the same person who gave him the keys to the Silverado.

Martin was taken to the Natrona County Detention Center. The stolen Silverado was recovered by police, having been stuck in the mud near Nancy English Park, at about 11:30 a.m.

In video footage from the address in the 1400 block of Jim Bridger Avenue, Martin can be "clearly identified" attempting to get into the residence at about 10:30 a.m.

At about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, police dispatch told investigators that Martin had told a relative to call police, saying it was extremely urgent that police search the trunk of the impounded vehicle.

Investigators searched the trunk and found the 95-year-old woman, bound with duct tape. She had multiple cuts on her head and face, and was taken to Wyoming Medical Center. She reportedly told police she was kidnapped by two men who hit her in the head with a silver pistol.

Investigators then collected Martin from jail and interviewed him again at the Casper Police Department.

Martin allegedly told police that he had been obtaining keys to vehicles which he knew to be stolen. He said the person who stole the keys would tell Martin where to find the vehicles. Martin then described how he got the Silverado from where it was parked in front of the owner's house a few days prior.

On Tuesday, Martin allegedly told police, he drive the Silverado to various addresses around Casper including an address on Jim Bridger Avenue, where he tried to get inside the residence using a set of keys. That set of keys, Martin said, came from the same person who gave him the keys to the pickup.

Martin then drove the Silverado to the neighborhood near Nancy English Park, where he got the pickup stuck and set out on foot. Martin then met up with another man, and the two walked through the neighborhood.

Martin and the other man allegedly went into the backyard of the 95-year-old woman's home in an effort to evade law enforcement officers, which had "saturated" the area. Martin and the other man allegedly talked about how they needed another vehicle to get out of the area.

The two then went into the victim's home through an unlocked back door, where they found and took a set of car keys. Martin saw the victim asleep on the couch.

Martin went into the garage and started removing items which were stacked on the vehicle, while the second man went into the basement. Martin then re-entered the living area of the home and saw that the victim had gotten up and gone into the bathroom.

Martin told the other man that the victim was awake. The other man allegedly went over to the victim, grabbed her in a "bear hug," and put her on the floor.

The victim struggled, and the second man bound the victim with duct tape, then carried her to the garage and put her in the trunk of the vehicle. Both Martin and the other man got into the vehicle, with the other man driving.

The second man drove them to the Fox Hill Apartments, where he got out of the vehicle and took off. Martin then drove to Eastridge Mall where he intended to meet a woman he knew.

Officers tried to talk with Martin, and Martin sped off with the victim in the trunk.

Investigators searched the victim's house and vehicle, finding a silver-colored replica pistol and a roll of duct tape in the vehicle.
