A father and daughter were arrested in California earlier this week after police say they kidnapped a woman at gunpoint in Las Vegas and held her captive for nearly a week in Southern California, where they raped, sexually assaulted and ultimately left her to die in the desert north of Los Angeles.

“She’s very lucky to be alive,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Capt. Eduardo Hernandez said in a Friday news conference.

The article goes on to state the following:

Stanley Alfred Lawton, 54, was arrested Wednesday in Palmdale, Calif., while a woman [who] officials identified as his 22-year-old daughter, Shaniya Nicole Poach Lawton, was apprehended in the same place early Thursday.

“It’s a vicious case,” Hernandez said.

“It’s not clear how long the woman in her 40s was in the desert or why she was released,” Trib Live reported. “She was left without food or water and was reportedly cold and suffering from exposure to the elements when she was found. She was treated at a hospital and released, Hernandez said.”
