A man with an extensive criminal history was arrested early New Year’s Day in Oklahoma after allegedly abducting a man and his goat during a carjacking or sorts in Missouri.
The victim told Creek County, Oklahoma, deputies that the assailant drove him around parts of Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas, at times pistol-whipping him and taking methamphetamine while driving.
The suspect, Brandon Kirby, was eventually found in Sand Springs and was caught after a chase with officers.
The victim was asleep in a truck outside an adult video store in Carthage, Missouri, while his friend was inside, when Kirby allegedly got into the truck, pointed a pistol at him and drove away.
The kidnapper eventually let the victim out along the side of a road in Creek County, but not before reportedly driving to Joplin, Missouri; Galena, Kansas; Webb City, Missouri; Tulsa; Sand Springs; and then into Creek County.
The victim told deputies that the kidnapper let him take his pet goat with him when he was set free. The deputies later transported both the victim and his goat to the sheriff’s department.
The Creek County Sheriff’s Office says the suspect, Kirby, was wanted out of Osage County for burglary and has multiple felony convictions out of Creek, Osage and Okmulgee counties for assault, burglary and possession of a stolen vehicle.
