WAGNER-A Sioux Falls man was arrested Saturday in Wagner on multiple charges, including kidnapping a Wagner woman.

At approximately 1 a.m., Wagner police officers responded to a call that an intoxicated male had his vehicle parked in a residence's backyard on North Main Street in Wagner, according to Wagner Police Officer Brian McGuire.

Officers found Kyle Hornedeagle, 27, in the driver's seat of the vehicle, allegedly holding down a female in the back seat. Officers ordered Hornedeagle to get out of the vehicle, but he refused, McGuire said. Officers then removed the individuals from the vehicle at gunpoint.

McGuire said officers then realized the 23-year-old female, of Wagner, had been assaulted, strangled and was being held against her will by Hornedeagle. She had strangulation marks around her neck and bruises on her hands, McGuire said.

The victim told police the pair had gone from Sioux Falls to Wagner that night. Hornedeagle and the victim were allegedly dating at the time of the incident.

Police obtained a warrant to conduct a blood draw on Hornedeagle. When they got to the hospital, McGuire said Hornedeagle verbally threatened a Charles Mix county deputy. The results of the blood draw are not yet available, McGuire said, and Hornedeagle refused to perform a preliminary breath test.

Hornedeagle was arrested on charges of domestic aggravated assault, second-degree aggravated kidnapping, fourth-offense DUI and threatening law enforcement.
