YORK, Pa. (AP) — Police in central Pennsylvania say they arrested a man on assault charges after a woman passed a note to a bank teller saying she needed help.
Northern York County Regional police say Jason Zacek, of Aberdeen, Md., was arrested Wednesday at a motel in Manchester Township. The alleged victim was found with a black eye and other injuries and told police Zacek threatened to cut off her head.
Investigators say Zacek had met the victim online, then began abusing and threatening her when they met in person. Authorities say the woman managed to slip a note asking for help to a bank teller without Zacek noticing.
Zacek is being held on $2,500 bail at York County Prison. It was not clear if he had an attorney.
