24-year-old Matthew Braund is charged with three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault for forcing a woman to have sexual contact with him on September 30 in the park at the end of Rochester Street.
Papers filed in Cercone’s office say Braund attempted to kiss the woman and put his hands down her pants. The woman tried to get away several times during the incident that lasted about an hour, but he would grab her and start to fondle her again. At one point, he tackled her and put a knife to her throat.
Braund is in McKean County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
