Lindsey and Bryan Parker, the father-daughter duo charged last year in connection to a bizarre Clearcreek Township kidnapping case, changed their pleas to guilty Tuesday afternoon in Warren County court.

Twenty-two-year-old Lindsey Parker pleaded guilty to two counts of felonious assault on her former boyfriend, whom police said had been lured into a home on East Lytle Points Road and then forced into a dog cage.

Prosecutors said Parker, her father and friend Christopher Edwards had “terrorized and assaulted” the victim for days until he escaped. He fled across the street to a fire station, which he discovered empty — the firefighters on duty were all out on a call. According to court documents, the victim broke in, stole an ambulance, punched hospital into the GPS and drove to the nearest result: Dayton Children’s Hospital.

Investigating officers said his injuries on arrival included cuts, burns, rope burns and bruising.

Lindsey Parker, Bryan Parker and Edwards would all be arrested in connection to the crime.

Bryan Parker attempted to blame his daughter for the kidnapping in a late 2019 interview from jail.

"I still love my daughter, you know,” he said then. “I know she needs some help.”

However, he also pleaded guilty Tuesday.

Both Parkers will be sentenced Feb. 28.

Christopher Edwards’ case remains in progress.
