Kootenai County, ID – Female abducted at a Spokane supermarket, found along Highway 53 in Rathdrum, Idaho.
On November 25, 2015 at about 7:30 pm, Kootenai County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the area of Highway 53 and Hidden Valley Road for a reported woman walking along the highway, bound in duct tape.
Several passerby vehicles stopped and rendered aid to the female until deputies arrived on scene. The victim, a 25 year old female from Washington, was transported for care to Kootenai Health where she was treated and released. For the victim’s safety, her name and hometown are being withheld.
According to the victim, she was abducted by force from the Broadway Foods in Spokane earlier in the day and at some point, driven to the Rathdrum area where she was physically assaulted by three people. She was able to flee after her captors left the area where she was being held. As this is still an active investigation, detectives are not releasing a possible motive for the abduction at this time.
During coordination with the Spokane Police Department a short time after locating the victim, a Spokane Detective was able to relay possible suspect information, including a location within Post Falls, Idaho.
Deputies were sent to the Riverbend Inn in Post Falls, looking for a red vehicle and a female named “Angela”. Deputies located a red vehicle with a female driver leaving the parking lot of the hotel. Once they stopped the car, the driver and sole occupant was identified as Angela M. Frisby, 37 years old of Coeur d’Alene, ID. KCSO Detectives went to the scene and interviewed Frisby and she was subsequently arrested for 1st Degree Kidnapping and Aggravated Assault. Frisby is currently being held at the Kootenai County jail on a bond of $150,000.
During the investigation, further information was developed on the other two suspects. Warrants were obtained for charges of 1st Degree Kidnapping and Aggravated Assault for Travis S. Anderson, 27 years old of Coeur d’Alene and Lilly M. Johnson, 19, also of Coeur d’Alene.
The North Idaho Violent Crimes Task Force located the two in Coeur d’Alene on Thursday, November 26th. Both were taken into custody for their warrants. Johnson is currently being held without bond and Anderson has a bond of $150,000.
