Spotsy man arrested and charged with abduction in King George
The King George Sheriff’s Office says a Spotsylvania man has been arrested after a woman was abducted in King George by a man with a machete.
Sheriff’s 1st Sgt. Kecia Wharton said her office was contacted at 12:40 a.m. on Thursday by a woman who reported that her adult daughter had just been kidnapped. The caller in the area of Gulvey Loop in King George, said the abductor was holding a machete and forced the victim out of the home and into a vehicle.
Wharton says 43-year-old Harry Pulliam was already free on bond for domestic violence-related charges involving the same victim. The Sheriff’s Office found the suspect’s vehicle stuck in a ditch not far from where the abduction had occurred. The woman was found in the vehicle, bleeding from her head.
Wharton says a K-9 apprehended Pulliam. She says Pulliam struck the dog multiple times with a chain. The dog was not seriously injured. Pulliam is charged with abduction, nighttime burglary while armed with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault and battery and animal cruelty. He was placed in the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond.
