Man Jailed for Kidnapping, Assault

A man is in McKean County Jail on $1 million bail for allegedly kidnapping and assaulting a woman on Sunday.

Police say 38-year-old William Pearce of Glen Campbell, PA, walked up to a 43-year-old woman from Brookville outside the Arlington Hotel in Kane, grabbed her by her shirt and put a knife to her face, and then ran away.

While the victim was at her camp just outside of Kane, Pearce showed up, grabbed her by the hair, slammed her against the wall, and made her take off her pants while he assault her. She tried to lock herself in the bathroom, but Pearce forced his way inside, held a knife to her neck and demanded that she give him her keys. She was able to run outside and get away.

Police are continuing their investigation.
