Kidnapping of Ex-Girlfriend Ends in Arrest at Walmart for Parolee

Walmart Pleasanton Arrest

On December 3rd, Brent Rosard Kipp was arrest at 11:22p.m. for several misdemeanors and felonies, including the kidnapping of his girlfriend (name unreleased) and possession of illicit substances.

The 25 year old arrived at his 20 year old ex-girlfriend's South San Francisco home and persuaded her to enter his vehicle by claiming he wanted to talk about their relationship.

Once inside, Kipp revealed he had no intention of speaking about their relationship, refused her requests to be taken home, and drove onto the freeway (occurred around 11:20p.m.) and out of the city. He then made death threats to the victim, saying he would hurt and/or kill her if she tried to escape.

Supposedly, Kipp was trying to take her out of state and into Reno, Nevada. His intents have not been confirmed aside from that, but the victim was likely very lucky that he provided her with an opportunity to escape.

The kidnapping ended in an arrest at 4501 Rosewood drive, a Pleasanton Walmart. Kipp had pulled off the highway and stopped there to buy candy and use the restroom. The victim used this opportunity to hide in the restroom and contact a Walmart staff member to inform them that she was being kidnapped.

When Pleasanton police arrived on the scene, Kipp initially tried to walk away. After ignoring several orders and resisting arrest attempts, he was tackled to the ground and detained.

Because Brent Kipp was on parole, officers performed a full search of his vehicle. Marijuana, methamphetamine, and brass knuckles, along with other drug paraphanilia, were discovered, resulting in his arrest. He was booked into Santa Rita Jail and is facing several felony charges for possession, kidnapping, and death threats.

The victim was returned to her home, where she can recover from the ordeal safely and with her family.


Brother of Yahoo CEO Beats His Girlfriend

Mason Mayer - Woman BeaterMason Mayer (34), younger brother to Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, was arrested on November 28th and charged with a trio of felonies: assault, false imprisonment, and domestic violence.

His ex-girlfriend, Kelli Ann Trent, delayed reporting these activites because he allegedly threatened to release nude pictures of her and beat her further. He claimed that he would use his family's prestige and wealth to ruin her name if she went to the police.

Trent described Mayer's history of domestic violence in court, backing her claims with post-abuse photographs taken of herself. According to her, this abuse carried on until the 24 of September, 2011, when he threatened to kill her after a beating.

Mayer allegedly ripped out her earrings, eyelashes, pulled out large clumps of hair, and slammed her head to the floor repeatedly, all while restraining and berating her. He then told her that the only way she'd leave their apartment alive was if he drove her to the Golden Gate Bridge, where he said she would jump or he would push her off.

Marissa Mayer Kelli Ann TrentA plea agreement was reached with prosecutors, and Mayer pleaded guilty to misdemeanor false imprisonment and has been placed on probation for three years. This will be of use to Trent if she pursues a civil suit against Mayer in the future.

Mayer's Attorney: Martin Sabelli, graduated from Yale School of Law in 1990, and was licensed to practice law in California in 1993.
