CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A Charleston man is charged with kidnapping and sexual assault after he allegedly attacked a woman in her home earlier this month.
Kanawha County sheriff’s deputies arrested 29-year-old Michael Dale Salisbury late Thursday night. He’s been wanted since the victim reported the assault, which allegedly happened March 6.
The criminal complaint alleges Salisbury entered the woman’s home as she slept and ordered her to perform sexual acts or he would kill her and her children. The complaint indicates he also videotaped the incident on the victim’s phone.
The complaint also alleges the victim escaped at one point–but was tackled in the street and forced into a car. Deputies said Salisbury then drove the victim to an ATM machine and withdrew money from her account.
Salisbury was apprehended by Dunbar police and turned over to Kanawha County deputies who made the arrest. He is charged with kidnapping and second-degree sexual assault.
He is being held without bail in the South Central Regional Jail.
