Woman Pleads Guilty for Kidnapping Victim at Knifepoint

A Bristow woman pleaded guilty Tuesday for kidnapping a victim at knifepoint at a Sapulpa gas station and forcing her to drive to Kellyville, announced U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson.

Kimberly Nichole Biglow, 44, was convicted of kidnapping in Indian Country and assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm in Indian Country.

“Federal prosecutors and our partners at the Sapulpa and Kellyville Police Departments and the FBI remain committed to pursuing individuals who commit acts of violence within the Northern District of Oklahoma,” said U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson. “Kimberly Biglow has now been brought to justice for the harm and emotional distress she caused to the victim in this case.”

On Nov. 12, 2021, shortly before 6 am, the victim was at a Sapulpa gas station fueling her silver Ford F-350 when Biglow approached her wearing pink pants and a hoodie. The victim described her as acting and speaking strangely.

The victim believed the defendant was asking for a ride and told her she was unable to provide one. She continued fueling the vehicle and believed Biglow had walked into the convenience store.

Instead, when she entered her truck, she saw Biglow in the passenger’s seat pointing an open folding knife with a silver blade at her. Biglow demanded the victim take her to a location in Sapulpa. The victim complied and initially drove around Sapulpa before being directed to drive south toward Kellyville on Highway 66.

The victim then told Biglow that her family had likely already contacted authorities since she had not answered their call. Panicked, Biglow directed the victim to stop and exited the vehicle near a Phillips 66 gas station on Highway 66 in Kellyville.

The victim called 911 and drove back north where she met with a responding Sapulpa police officer. Biglow was located outside the Phillips 66 in Kellyville and taken into custody.

The FBI, Sapulpa Police Department, and Kellyville Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Scott and Spencer Willson are prosecuting the case.
