Attempted Kidnapping Suspect Arrested

Posted: Updated:
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -

Police in Coeur D'Alene say they have arrested a man who attempted to kidnap a woman early last week.

Doug Standish was apprehended in Coeur D'Alene at a little after noon on Sunday.  Police along with the N. Idaho Violent Crimes Task Force Found Standish on the F Dock of the Coeur D'Alene Resort Marina.  Authorites approached a 34 foot boat that had it's cover open.  The owner of that boat walked out and said "He's right here", then Standish walked out behind him.  

The owner of the boat told officers that he came to the marina today to do some boat maintenance. He got on his boat and opened up the front galley area and saw Standish. He asked Standish to put down his gun and surrender and Standish complied. Standish was wet and cold from having been in the water the night before. He related to detectives that the previous night he got spooked by CDA Resort security guards doing their nightly rounds so he jumped in water. He said he swam around to the other side of the dock until after the guards left and then he got back into the boat.

Detectives are looking into Standish's whereabouts for the past week.  They say he may have been spotted at the Resort Aviation Pilot Lounge on November 9th.  He may have been using the computers there to send emails.  Standish is familiar with aircraft and airports and went undetected by other pilots while in the lounge.

Standish has been charged with kidnapping for the November 4th 2013 incident in which he took a former girlfriend by gunpoint and held her against her will. Several hours later he let her out of her car near a law office in Coeur d'Alene so she could drop off some paperwork. She escaped and called police. Standish took off in her vehicle and it was later discovered in the 600 block of Hubbard Ave. Standish indicated to detectives he was upset over their breakup.

The investigation is ongoing.
