A man wanted on suspicion of kidnapping two people in Colorado Springs this month was arrested late Friday in Teller County.

The Teller County Sheriff's Office said Timothy Ray Vigil, 32, was arrested at a friend's house near Divide. Earlier that afternoon, Colorado Springs police had informed the office that Vigil was thought to be hiding somewhere between Florissant and Divide, Sheriff Mike Ensminger said Saturday.

"He was just about a quarter mile away from the sheriff's office, so it wasn't too long of a drive," Ensminger said with a chuckle.

Though Vigil had been considered armed and dangerous, he surrendered peacefully, Ensminger said.

The FBI assisted in locating Vigil, according to the sheriff's office.

Vigil, along with 29-year-old Suzanne Cherri Capretz, was wanted on suspicion of first-degree kidnapping.

The two are accused of kidnapped two people Dec. 20 in the 300 block of South 18th Street, according to Colorado Springs police.

Both victims were released, though one was injured.

Capretz has not been arrested yet. Nor has a an unidentified male for whom police do not have a good description, a Colorado Springs spokesman said Saturday.

Anyone with information about Capretz or the unidentified man is asked to call police at 444-7000 or Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP (7867).
