Ohio Man Faces Assault, Drug Charges for Hancock County Juvenile
A 21-year-old from Ohio is now facing multiple charges in connection with an underage girl from Maine.
The juvenile female was reported missing in November to the Hancock County Sheriff's Office. Police have not released her name and hometown, only that she resided in Hancock County. Officials say it wasn't long after the initial report that she was located and taken into custody in Ohio. The girl was reunited with her family and returned to Maine.
An investigation into her disappearance resulted in an arrest warrant for 21-year-old Timothy J. Pumneo of Orville, Ohio on charges of gross sexual assault, aggravated furnishing of scheduled drugs, sexual abuse of a minor, and criminal restraint. Pumneo was arrested on the warrant in Ohio and has been extradited to Maine, where he will stand trial.
