OKLAHOMA CITY -

An arrest warrant has been issued for a woman who is accused of kidnapping an elderly Oklahoma City man and assaulting him, which resulted in his death.

According to police, on October 6, the victim, 71-year-old Paul David Birdsall Sr., was transported to an area hospital by EMSA due to an assault. Birdsall told police that he had been held against his will for several days and forced to drive to an ATM to withdraw cash and give to the suspect, 40-year-old Evelyn Denise Goldsmith.

Police said Goldsmith assaulted Birdsall numerous times between September 25 and October 6. Goldsmith reportedly left the residence on October 6, and Birdsall was able to call EMSA.

Investigators said they were notified on Monday, December 8, that Birdsall passed away over the weekend as a result of his injuries.

Goldsmith is wanted on multiple charges, including eight counts of robbery, domestic assault with a dangerous weapon, domestic strangulation, and kidnapping. Because of Birdsall's death, investigators said they will also seek a warrant for Goldsmith on the charge of first-degree murder.

Anyone with information regarding Ms. Goldsmith's whereabouts should call 9-1-1 immediately.
