Man Admits to Assault, Kidnapping

A Franklinville man has pleaded guilty to kidnapping and assaulting a woman on Thanksgiving weekend in Olean.

Seneca Nation Marshals stopped to check on a vehicle parked on the side of Route 219 on November 25 and found that 40-year-old Dean Pepper and a woman had been involved in a domestic incident. They learned that Pepper assaulted and strangled the victim in his vehicle in Olean, then drove to the Town of Carrollton.

Pepper is scheduled for sentencing on April 7 in Cattaraugus County Court.
