A Portales Woman Was Kidnapped And Raped Before She Was Able To Escape
Portales police arrest a man for the kidnapping and rape of a Portales woman.
Frank Stroud, 49, was arrested by the Portales Police on Thursday morning on charges of Kidnapping and rape.
Stroud took the victim to his house where he held her captive for two days. He took away her phone and she was not allowed to talk to her kids.
When Stroud asked the victim for sex, she declined. He then kicked the victim leaving her with a bruise on her leg. Stroud then asked the victim yet again, after she declined for the second time he then began banging his head against a wall and punching himself in the face.
According to Brandon Carpenter at ConnectAmarillo.com “Stroud continued his request for sex and becoming frustrated with the victim to the point that he began to “Bang his head against the wall, slapping and punching himself in the face.” according to the witness statement. The victim relented and allowed the sex under duress.”
Ironically, Stroud had a mandatory anger management meeting which he took the victim along with him. She was able to escape and get in touch the the Portales police.
