Deputies ask neighbors to be vigilant while searching for kidnapping suspect

Posted: Updated:

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is warning people living near Peyton to lock their doors and to be vigilant while they look for a fifth suspect in connection to a possible kidnapping.

Deputies said they believe the man might be in the area of Eureka and Spencer Road, located a few miles to the southeast of Peyton. Deputies said they believe the suspect could be armed and dangerous.

Deputies said he is a 6'0 tall white man wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt. They said he could also be a suspect in connection to recent burglaries in the area. 

Deputies said they arrested a total of four juvenile suspects in connection to the kidnapping case Wednesday. They said two of those suspects are also wanted in connection to a shooting, and could be facing attempted murder charges. 

This all started with the report of a girl being taken against her will near the campus of Sand Creek High School in Colorado Springs. Officers were called to the area to search for a suspect and vehicle. 

A short time later, there was a carjacking report a few miles east in the county. According to deputies, the suspects held the victim on Bullet Road at gunpoint and stole a white Mercedes. The Mercedes was later found abandoned in Peyton.

Colorado Springs Police Lt. Howard Black said that the girl was found safe and returned to her family a couple of hours after both calls. 

Deputies also said they recovered the 2014 red Ford Explorer wanted in connection to the case on Wednesday
