PUEBLO, Colo. — A Pueblo County man is facing multiple charges after he kidnapped his girlfriend, assaulted her, and threatened her family Wednesday afternoon, according to the sheriff’s office.
Deputies said it happened at the Blende-area home where the suspect, Jacob Allen Kiker, was living with the victim and her family. The victim told deputies Kiker became angry and punched her several times. He then demanded she give him her gun, according to deputies. When the victim refused, Kiker hit her in the face. She gave him the gun. Kiker threatened her repeatedly with it, and at one point put the barrel to her head, according to deputies. The victim said he also threatened her family members with the gun.
Kiker then ordered the victim to take him to a convenience store that didn’t have cameras, according to deputies. The victim said she didn’t know of a store without cameras, but took him to the 7-Eleven on East Fourth Street. Kiker went into the store, came out a short time later, gave the victim the gun, and told her to hide it, according to deputies. The victim then drove Kiker back home.
The victim told deputies she didn’t leave Kiker at the store because she was afraid he would hurt her and her family.
Kiker is charged with second-degree kidnapping, menacing with a deadly weapon, third-degree assault, and domestic violence.
