OLEAN, N.Y. (WIVB) — An Olean man accused of kidnapping a woman is facing a multitude of charges, including rape.
A female allegedly kidnapped by 62-year-old Francis O’Donnell was located at Olean General Hospital with several injuries. She had been missing for a month, and was allegedly held against her will in O’Donnell’s apartment.
Police said she willingly entered his car before being kidnapped.
O’Donnell was arrested in February, and now faces charges of kidnapping, rape, coercion and criminal sex act. He pleaded ‘not guilty’ to the charges.
The female was arrested shortly after O’Donnell was. She was charged with being a fugitive from justice after officials say she failed to report for probation.
O’Donnell will return to court on the morning of May 15.
