The male was described as being Hispanic, about 29 years, about 5’07” tall, weighing around 175 pounds. He had multiple tattoos and a fade style haircut.

She resisted him, spraying him with pepper spray, but he
overcame her. The victims’ infant child was in the home, so she minimized her resistance, fearing for her safety and the safety
of her child.

Only then did her assailant allow her to leave with her child, but not before ordering her to not tell anyone.
On July 27, 2016, shortly after initial contact with the victim, Officers searched the area of the victims’ apartment but were not
able to locate the suspect. Clovis Police Department Detectives were activated, beginning the investigation into this Kidnapping and to conduct crime scene investigations. Through the combined efforts of the Patrol Division and Special Operation Divisions of the Clovis Police Department, Roy Cavazos (29 years of age) was identified as the suspect Friday morning, July 29, 2016.
Arrest warrants were generated for Roy Cavazos (29 years of age), for Kidnapping, Armed Robbery, Criminal Sexual Penetration (7 counts), Aggravated Burglary, Assault with Intent to Commit a violent Felony, Trafficking Methamphetamine, Abuse of a Child, Tampering with Evidence, and Larceny. At about 1:30 p.m. on July 29, 2016, Roy Cavazos was found in the 2000 block of Chapparal Circle.
