The man accused of kidnapping a woman who was later seen in a surveillance photo in a Monona convenience store was charged today with four felonies.
Matthew Levin, 50, of Mount Horeb, who police identify as the owner of Integrity Auto on Femrite Drive in Monona was charged with kidnapping, second degree sexual assault, strangulation and false imprisonment during a court appearance Friday.
Monona police were first called March 20, 2018, for a report of a partially nude woman who ran into an area gas station stating someone was trying to hurt her. She left before officers arrived. Police released surveillance photos of the woman and tips from the public led investigators to her Tuesday night.
The 25-year-old woman told police a man offered her a ride home, but instead drove her to a business in Monona where she was assaulted. She then later escaped at the gas station.
