COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Two people are accused of assaulting and kidnapping an acquaintance in western Colorado Springs Thursday afternoon.

One suspect, 22-year-old Melody Wall, has been arrested in connection with the crime. A warrant has been issued for the second suspect, 39-year-old Damon Brimer. Police believe the suspects and the victim knew each other.

Police said the assault happened in Garden of the Gods park. The two suspects held the victim and pistol whipped her, resulting in multiple injuries to her head and face, according to police. The suspects then restrained the victim in her own vehicle and drove it to the parking lot of a shopping center in the area of 32nd Street and Colorado Avenue. The suspects said they were going to meet “a friend.”

When they got to the parking lot, the victim screamed for help and tried to get out of the car, but the suspects tried to keep her inside. A Colorado Springs police officer saw the struggle and went to intervene. The suspects ran away when they saw the officer. Police caught Wall, but Brimer escaped.

Wall is charged with second-degree kidnapping, second-degree assault, menacing, and conspiracy. Police said she also had several warrants for unrelated crimes.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Brimer. He is described as a white man, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 170 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. Police said he used to live in Fountain, and more recently lived in the area of Las Vegas Street and Tejon Street. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call police at 719-444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 719-634-7867 (STOP).
