38-year old arrested in Omaha for beating of 29 year old Council Bluffs woman left in abandoned pickup
Bryan Bey of Cresent, Iowa was captured in a parking lot near 58th and the Northwest Radial Highway Friday. Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker says the woman was found bound, handcuffed and badly beaten Thursday afternoon in the back of a pick up on Mormon Bridge Road near Crescent. Her condition has left her unable to provide much information to investigators. But authoriites have learned enough to seek the second man, 32-year old Travis Labno at last report remains at large. He is a felon with a number of previous convictions.
Danker tells 1110 KFAB warrants have been issued for 38 year old Bryan Bey of Crescent and 32 year old Travis Labno of Omaha. Both are facing first degree kidnapping charges.
Danker says it appears the woman knew the men and that it is not a random crime. He believes the assault happened late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.
She was found around 2:30 Thursday afternoon.
