A victim wants to tell her story now that the person who robbed and kidnapped her is finally behind bars.
Kathie Orser has spent the past year and a half praying for justice after she was robbed and kidnapped at gunpoint at her East Lubbock home. The suspect, Ramiro Sistos Jr., was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years for aggravated robbery. Now, Orser says she can finally sleep in peace knowing he will not be able to do this someone else anytime soon.
"When he got ready to leave, he made me walk down the hallway and made me stand on my front porch, and he told me if I called the police, 'I'm going to pop you, I will kill you," said Orser.
Orser said she is still living with nightmares after the incident.
A police report said Sistos followed a woman home from a fast-food restaurant. As she was going from her car to her residence, Sistos confronted her.
Police accused Sistos of pointing a gun at Orser's chest at point-blank range and demanding money. She did not have any,so he demanded she drive him to an ATM to withdraw money. She did not have any money in her bank account either.
According to the police report, “He needed something valuable from her or he was going to kill her.”
"I just couldn't do anything but pray 'Please dear Lord, please don't let him kill me,'" said Orser.
When he could not get any money, Sistos demanded to look inside her home. Once inside, he stole a set of knives and a necklace from a jewelry box.
"He took out a necklace I can't replace. That necklace belonged to my mother," said Orser. "He took that, and I can't replace it. My mother has been gone about eight years, and he took that."
Sistos is now behind bars for this crime and Orser's life forever changed.
"My doors were locked and shut and they stay that way. I used to go to the grocery store by myself and I don't do that anymore," Orser said. "I used to be able to go out at night when my husband was gone. I can't do that anymore either."
