WILSON BOROUGH, Pa. - Authorities in Northampton County allege a 25-year-old followed a woman and intentionally rammed his truck into the back of her car.
Police charged Kevin Z. Holton with more than a dozen charges, including aggravated assault, in connection with the alleged attack last month in Wilson Borough. District Judge Richard Yetter arraigned the 25-year-old Sunday morning, setting bail at $50,000.
The victim reported to Wilson Borough police that Holton began following her in his Dodge Durango on April 16, when she pulled out of the Taco Bell parking at 2440 Northampton St., according to court records. Holton reportedly followed her along the 2200 and 2100 block of Ferry Street.
When she stopped at a stop sign at Ferry and 21st streets, Holton allegedly accelerated into the back of her Chevy Impala. He began demanding that the victim and her passenger get out of the car, but she managed to drive away.
Holton followed her until 10th and Northampton streets in Easton. She told police that she believed Holton rammed into her car because of a “previous altercation” between the two. Her passenger also identified Holton as the driver.
The driver reported a 1-year-old child was in the car at the time.
He allegedly caused about $500 in damage.
Police charged him with three counts each of aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment and single counts of criminal mischief, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving and careless driving. Holton failed to post bail and was sent to Northampton County Prison to await a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 6.
Investigators are asking that other potential victims of Seth Mull step forward.Read More »
