Henry Clinton Yancy Jr. was arrested and charged with criminal attempt homicide, aggravated assault, burglary, criminal trespass and a raft of other offenses after taking his ex-girlfriend hostage and assaulting her for 20 hours in Altoona, PA.
She finally managed to escape Friday morning, and only to be attacked by a naked Yancy yet again when a good guy with a gun stepped in and stopped the attack,saving her life:
On 05/15/2015 officers from our department were dispatched to the rear of the 1000 block of Lexington Avenue for a report of a naked man assaulting a female. Upon arrival officers located Henry Clinton Yancy Jr. naked, being held at gunpoint by a neighbor who had come to the female victim’s rescue. Yancy was taken into custody without incident. The investigation revealed that Yancy, the victim’s ex-boyfriend, had held his victim hostage for approximately 20 hours prior to her being able to escape. The victim reported that Yancy physically assaulted her throughout the night and stabbed her in the left leg. Yancy made several threats to the victim indicating that he was going to eventually kill her. At approx. 10:00 AM the victim believed she could escape and fled the residence. Yancy chased her and continued to assault her at the rear of the residence prior to neighbors intervening. Both the victim and the defendant were taken to UPMC Altoona for treatment. The defendant’s treatment stemmed from a pre-existing medical condition. At this time Yancy is awaiting arraignment for Criminal Attempt Homicide, Aggravated Assault, Burglary, Criminal Trespass and lesser included offenses. We would like to thank all of the neighbors that came to the victim’s aid, stopping the attack and subsequently rendering first aid.
Of course, David Frum will be most shocked, because this type of thing never happens according to him. More details here
