ELK GROVE, CA – Elk Grove police have arrested the man responsible for pulling a gun on, and handcuffing, a real estate agent on Thursday.

According to Elk Grove Police, 47-year-old David Burnhart was arrested today on numerous charges including kidnapping and making terrorist threats. He is a registered sex offender and his bail has been set to $1,000,000. He is scheduled to appear in court on January 13th.

On Thursday at approximately 4:30 p.m., the Elk Grove Police Department responded to the 8400 block of Elk Grove Blvd. regarding a kidnapping that had taken place at a nearby location.

Upon arrival, officers met with the victim who indicated that she had been kidnapped and held against her will by the suspect, later identified as Burnhart.

The victim, who is a Real Estate agent, was working at a model home sales office located in the 8500 block of Ria Formosa Way when she was contacted via telephone by Burnhart. He made an appointment for 3:30 p.m. with the agent to see the model homes at the new development.

When Burnhart arrived, he brandished a handgun, threatened the victim, and held her against her will. Burnhart proceeded to walk the victim into a bedroom inside the home then handcuffed her. The victim was later moved to a second location inside the residence. During the encounter, Burnhart continually threatened the victim.

While Burnhart and the victim were inside the model home, a security officer arrived and could be seen outside the development. Burnhart removed the handcuffs, threatened the victim and ordered her to walk to the front door. As he was exiting the home, the victim closed and locked the door behind him. Burnhart was unable to get back into the home and drove away in a red pickup truck.

The victim waived down the security officer and asked for assistance. Fearing for his safety and the safety of the victim, the security officer drove to a near-by shopping area and contacted law enforcement.
