“We don't believe this was a random abduction. We believe these kinds of things are very rare in this country,” Oklahoma County Sheriff Tommie Johnson III said. “I believe she was a target.”

On Friday, officials said, two armed men forced 43-year-old Isabel Brown into her car near Northwest 178th Street and MacArthur Boulevard. Johnson said when the Kasey Alarm went off, the victim was dropped off near Interstate 40 and May Avenue.

“This will keep our citizens informed of events in real time,” Johnson said. “Our best eyes and ears are all of you out there in the community following things.”

According to the warrant, FBI agents assisted and were able to retrieve four images from the victim's Tesla. One of them showed a black man “armed with a long rifle and not wearing a mask.” Facial recognition identified the suspect as 23-year-old Kadarryus Caples of Fort Worth, Texas, according to Johnson. The warrant shows that the victim selected Cables from a photo lineup based on his driver's license photo.

“We value those relationships, so we certainly reach out to them if we believe they have expertise, technology or resources that can help us in our efforts,” Johnson said of the FBI's support.

Court records also state that the suspect beat and choked the victim until she lost consciousness and told her he “was going to kill her” until he was released.

“She can still walk and talk, but that will never heal the trauma she went through,” Johnson said.

According to investigators, the victim reported that $250,000 was stolen from her car and another $10,000 was stolen from her Cash App account. Once the suspect is caught, investigators hope to find the other suspects. It's unclear exactly how many were involved.

“Hopefully this person will be taken into custody and through questioning we will be able to clearly identify the other people involved,” he said.

The suspect is wanted for kidnapping, robbery and aggravated assault. Although the suspects are still at large, Sheriff Johnson says this was not a random kidnapping and there is no danger to the community.
