A man accused of holding an Elk Grove real estate agent against her will last week was in Sacramento Superior Court Tuesday.
David Burnhart, 47, who was arrested in Modesto, was charged with six felonies: kidnapping to commit another crime, assault with intent to commit rape, false imprisonment, terrorist threats, robbery and having a concealed firearm with a prior conviction of a violent offense, according to the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office.
Burnhart allegedly made an appointment to meet the agent at a new housing development on the 8500 block of Ria Formosa Way on Jan. 8. When he arrived, investigators accuse him of threatening the woman with a handgun, and threatening and handcuffing her. The agent was able to lock the suspect out of the model home when he left for a moment. She then flagged down a patrolling security guard for help. The agent was unharmed.
