Harrisburg Police have charged 33-year old Julian Amway with the abduction of a 34-year old woman from HACC’s Harrisburg campus Wednesday evening. At about 6:20 p.m. Wednesday, police received reports that a man was threatening a class with a weapon.
Amway indicated that he had a handgun and forced the victim, his girlfriend, from the building. The campus was shut down while campus security and Harrisburg Police searched all vehicles leaving the campus.
After questioning family members of the victim, officers were able to locate the pair near the Dock Street Dam at around 8:30 p.m. Amway was taken into police custody at that time.
The victim told police that Amway had been jealous and did not believe she was actually attending a class. After forcing her into his car, Amway drove around the Harrisburg area, repeatedly beating her. The victim suffered several contusions from the assault.
Amway made her drive them to the Dock Street Dam and once they arrived she tried to flee the vehicle. Amway chased and caught her just as officers arrived. He threatened to kill her several times during the abduction.
Harrisburg Police say Amway was not armed but did have drug paraphernalia in his possession. He has been charged with Kidnapping, Simple Assault, Terroristic Threats and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
