A Vancouver woman now facing kidnapping and attempted murder charges lured the victim to her apartment last week so her boyfriend could rob him, police said.
Freddy Landstrom survived being shot in the head, shoulder, hands, elbow and abdomen last Wednesday morning.. He managed to stumble to a house at Kadow's Marina, where police and paramedics found him.
Newly released court documents show Landstrom went to the apartment of 22-year-old Joanna Speaks on Northeast 160th Avenue in Vancouver after being called there last week.
Police said Landstrom was told to go to the bedroom, and that's when 19-year-old Pedro Godinez Jr., showed up at the apartment and kidnapped him, police said.
Godinez told Landstrom to get in the driver's seat of his car, while Godinez sat behind him with a gun pointed at his head, police said.
Landstrom was told to drive to Lower River Road near Kadow's Marina, where he eventually got out of the car and was told to get on his knees, the court documents said.
Police said Godinez took Landstrom's iPhone, keys and wallet, while also demanding the PIN number to his ATM account. Despite earlier telling Landstrom he wouldn't shoot him if he did everything he was told, Godinez then opened fire, shooting Landstrom multiple times, detectives said.
Landstrom managed to run away into a nearby swamp, walked for more than a mile and found help at Kadow's Marina.
Detectives quickly launched an investigation based on information from Landstrom, and they served a search warrant at Speaks' home. However, they didn't find Landstrom's wallet and holster for a small pistol until Speaks' father called police to tip them off the following day, detectives said.
Officers found the evidence in a dumpster off Foster Road in Portland.
Speaks made her first court appearance Monday on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping and robbery.
The court documents said Speaks and Landstrom first met six weeks ago on the side of a Milwaukie street. Because Speaks was struggling, Landstrom hired her and paid her $50 to clean his home the next day. They never saw each other again until Speaks called him last Wednesday.
Though Speaks has been arrested, Godinez remains at large. He's described as Hispanic, 5'10" and 220 pounds with closely-shaved black hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo that says "Mariana" on the right side of his head, and a tattoo that says "Monica" on the right side of his neck. He also has tattoos that say "Baby" on his right forearm and "Silent" on his left forearm."
Police said he should be considered armed and dangerous.
