LOS ANGELES (CBS) —  A woman was hospitalized in critical condition Friday after being kidnapped in Apple Valley.

The man suspected of abducting her was arrested by undercover sheriff’s detectives in San Gabriel as he tried to collect ransom money from the victim’s father.

A woman in her 20s arrived at an Antelope Valley hospital where she was listed in critical condition after a ransom call was made Wednesday, Steve Whitmore of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

“The victim was taken, we don’t know how, from the Apple Valley area to an Antelope Valley area hospital with serious injuries,” Whitmore said.

The suspect, in his mid-20s, was booked at the Temple Station on suspicion of kidnapping for ransom, Whitmore said. The man’s name was not released.

    Some of the fine L.A. gangbanger scum that have moved to the high desert in the last few years. These days crimes like these are commonplace while the crime rate in L.A. is the lowest in decades. Thanks so very much for dumping your human trash on us.

    Hopefully this idiot is raped to death in jail. That’s the only thing good that can happen to him.
