Dustin Nails has outstanding warrants for burglary of habitation and other county warrants.

Amanda Slaughter has been arrested and charged with burglary of habitation.

A possible early morning car arson, a reported abduction, and a manhunt kept more than 20 Wichita Falls police units busy Tuesday.

Police responded to the 2600 block of Lawrence Road around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday on an alleged abduction of a female who was reportedly sleeping on the floor of the house.

Officers also reported there had been an apparent arson there early this morning when a car was set on fire by the same suspect.

That suspect is a man with a lengthy record including terroristic threats, aggravated robbery, and assault, who was arrested after a chase last September as police were investigating thefts of vehicles from Patterson Auto Group.

A few weeks before that arrest he had been arrested for allegedly threatening a neighbor with a gun and then assaulting a woman in a park and warning witnesses he would kill them if they didn’t mind their own business.

After the abduction was reported, numerous officers fanned out across the city looking for the suspect.

An arrest was made of a woman on Old Iowa Park Road, but it is not known if it is connected to this case.

Police said the case is under active investigation.
