BANGOR — State and federal law enforcement authorities in Pennsylvania say they believe a Maine man could be responsible for a daytime kidnapping and rape in the Allegheny National Forest.

The Bangor Daily News says Pennsylvania State Police say the unknown suspect could be from the Gardiner, Maine, area and that his vehicle is registered in Maine.

Police say the suspect approached a couple last Tuesday afternoon at the Kinzua Point Information Center, tied up the man and forced the woman into his pickup truck and took her to the Red Bridge area of McKean County. He then released her.

The suspect is described as white, 30 to 40 years old, with short hair, possibly balding and a dark scruffy beard. He identified himself as “Mark.”
