On 12-30-13 at 1608 hrs, the Sparks Police Department responded to a report of an ongoing domestic assault inside a vehicle in the drive through of In and Out Burger located at 280 Pyramid Way Sparks, Nevada.
Upon arrival, officers made contact with multiple witnesses and a female victim inside the restaurant who identified Adam FELTY as the suspect of the domestic assault. FELTY was then located still seated in in his vehicle in the drive through aisle of the restaurant. Officers contacted FELTY and detained him.
During the investigation, Patrol Officers and Detectives learned that FELTY and the victim had a long term relationship which had recently been terminated by the victim. Both FELTY and the victim reside in the Sacramento, California area. The subsequent investigation revealed FELTY had abducted the victim from her residence and drove her against her will to the Sparks area. The victim made multiple attempts to jump from the moving vehicle as it traveled on I-80.
Investigators learned that the California Highway Patrol received multiple calls from witnesses observing the assault and abduction as FELTY’s vehicle traveled westbound. Additionally, the Sacramento County Sherriff’s Office received a missing person’s report in which the victim was reported as missing/ endangered after she made a distressed call to a friend as she was being kidnapped.
Once FELTY entered the drive through lane at IN and OUT, the victim attempted to flee from the vehicle. FELTY prevented her escape by striking her in the face numerous times and restraining her. The victim was able to eventually free herself from the vehicle and flee to safety inside the restaurant.
FELTY was transported to the Washoe County Jail where he was booked for Domestic Battery, False Imprisonment and Kidnapping.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact the Sparks Police Department Detective Section at 775-353-2225 or Secret Witness at 775-322-4900.
