On Wednesday, May 8, 2019, the Randall County Sheriff’ Office received information on the whereabouts of two suspects wanted in connection with a kidnapping case that occurred in March 2019. The case stemmed from an incident where a female was kidnapped from an Amarillo restaurant and driven into Randall County.

While the victim was in the vehicle, she was being assaulted by two individuals later identified as 44 year old Christopher Paul Givens and 28 year old Tristin Janae Givens. Both are from Pampa and are husband and wife. The victim was able to escape the vehicle on S. Osage Street where a passerby saw what was happening and called 911.

The suspects were known to the victim and felony warrants were issued for their arrests for aggravated kidnapping.

Information was received that both suspects were at a residence located at 320 W, FM 1151 (Claude Highway). The Randall County SWAT Team attempted to make contact with the individuals inside the residence. It was determined that there were 4 people in the residence.

Two other people in the residence obeyed the initial commands to exit. After a short standoff, Christopher and Tristin Given exited the home and were taken into custody without incident.

One of the other individuals in the residence was also found to have a warrant and was arrested for a probation violation on a previous drug charge.

All three were booked into the Randall County jail. The case is still under investigation by the Criminal Investigation Division of the Randall County Sheriff’s Office.
