Authorities capture man in Chilton County that allegedly kidnapped woman from her home


CLANTON, Ala. (WIAT) — Update Nov. 1 — The Chilton County Sheriff’s Office says they captured the suspect sleeping inside the Old Trade School building Halloween night when deputies were performing an extra patrol in the area of County Road 435.

The Sheriff’s Office says two deputies were walking through the building when they found a person asleep inside. They asked the subject to uncover himself so they could identify him; when he did, they identified him as Timothy Wyatt, wanted on nationwide warrants through Autauga County of robbery 1st, kidnapping 1st and domestic violence 2nd.

The Autauga County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man that reportedly entered a woman’s home and kidnapped her, according to a release from Central Alabama Crime Stoppers.

Timothy Wyatt, 36, allegedly entered his victim’s home around 2:30 a.m. on Monday, and began to choke her as she slept. The victim woke up, and Wyatt reportedly demanded money before tying her hands behind her back and forcing her into a blue Ford Taurus.

The suspect reportedly continuously threatened to stab the victim while driving, and then stopped in a remote area and forced the victim into the trunk of the vehicle, according to the release. Wyatt then drove to a service station on the 2100 block of 7th Street South in Clanton.

As Wyatt exited the vehicle, the victim reportedly escaped the trunk and was able to get help.

The Autauga County Sheriff’s Office has warrants out for Robbery 1st Degree, Kidnapping 1st Degree, and Domestic Violence 2nd Degree in Wyatt’s name and are actively searching for the man they have deemed to be armed and dangerous.

If you have any information on Wyatt’s whereabouts, authorities ask you to call 911, or Crime Stoppers at 215-STOP.
