Law Enforcement Agents Tracking Suspect in Aggravated Kidnapping

- UPDATE: Law enforcement officers continue their search for a man they say kidnapped and sexually assaulted a Texoma woman on Monday morning.

On Monday evening, Wichita Falls SWAT zeroed in on a home in the 2300 block of 10th Street after detectives received a tip that there may be evidence related to the kidnapping inside of the home.

A Wichita County judge signed a search warrant for the home and SWAT assisted police as a precaution.

SWAT members entered the home around 7 p.m. and cleared the scene after the suspect, 52-year-old James Donald Kreidler, was not found.

On Monday morning, WFPD officials say a woman was abducted from her apartment at Wellington on the Lake.

The investigation moved to Highway 281 in Archer County where the young woman was as able to get away and then taken to the hospital.

Her condition is not known at this time. 

Police say Kreidler and the victim did not know each other.

Kreidler is still on the loose and is considered to be armed and dangerous.

If you have information on his whereabouts, call 911 immediately or the Wichita Falls Police Department at (940) 720-5000.  

Police have two warrants out for his arrest for aggravated sexual assault and aggravated kidnapping and amount to $1.5 million. 

Kreidler has previous arrests and convictions for making terroristic threats, violation of protective order and obstruction or retaliation.
