Stanley Alfred Lawton, 54, and Shaniya Nicole Poche-Lawton, 22, dumped the woman off a highway near Edwards Air Force Base north of Los Angeles, where she was found by military personnel during a routine patrol early Wednesday 

She was found by military personnel during a routine patrol early Wednesday, Los Angeles County sheriff's Capt. Eduardo Hernandez said at a news conference.

They had also held her captive for a week.It's not clear how long the woman in her 40s was in the desert or why she was released. 

She was left without food or water and was reportedly cold and suffering from exposure to the elements when she was found in a 'disheveled state.'

Neither of the suspects have a criminial past in Nevada, they both have prior felony convictions in California, according to court records obtained by KTNV

Stanley Lawton's convictions stem from the 1980s but his daughter received hers in recent years.  

Nevada records state that Lawton, who has several children,  has been in court several times dealing with child custody issues.  

'He's just one of those family people,' said neighbor John Henderson. 'He's got a lot of kids. He's got a lot of family. He's got a lot of friends that would never expect this from him.' 

Police also took out guns and a computer from the suspect's home in North Las Vegas.

Shaniya Nicole Poche-Lawton, 22 has recent convictions but it is not clear what they are for 

Neighbor Kimberly Henderson told KTNV: 'It's mind boggling, especially two doors down, it goes to show that anything can happen.'

Eduardo Hernandez said the female victim was treated at a hospital and released.

While officials said Lawton and Poche-Lawton knew the victim, they didn't provide a motive for the attack and said no ransom was demanded.

It was not clear if they had lawyers who could speak on their behalf.

The father and daughter kidnapped the woman by gunpoint in North Las Vegas on October 30 and took her to Lawton's home in Palmdale, California, authorities said. They're accused of keeping her in a room and sexually assaulting her on Sunday.

Law enforcement sources told NBC Los Angeles that the woman was kidnapped from a business in Las Vegas and held captive in Nevada, being being put in the trunk of a car, and finally taken to a location in Palmdale. 

The father-daughter team are accused of robbing the woman at ATMs on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, court documents say, but authorities would not say how much money was stolen.

Lawton was arrested Wednesday, and his daughter was taken into custody early the next morning.

They each face charges of kidnapping to commit a robbery, attempted murder, kidnapping from outside the state, rape and three counts of first-degree ATM robbery, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

Lawton and Poche-Lawton were being held on bail of $4.5 million and $3.5 million, respectively, the district attorney's office said.

The case may be moved to federal court because the victim was taken across state lines. The FBI is investigating the abduction with Los Angeles County and North Las Vegas police.

Thank God allowed this woman to live in order that these two evil entities could be caught, no telling how many more woman are man would have been raped and left for dead if not for this woman surviving. Evil is truly running rampant. Demonic influence is taking over the minds of the evil doers. Lord have mercy!

Comment by Jeffrey L Donovan on Sunday

I am so glad that the bail is very high. The punishment should be a return of the favor, by leaving them tied up in the desert. The apple does not fall far from the tree. This animalistic behavior suggest that the two may be predisposed to violence.  They should never see the light of day again outside of a prison.
