An arrest warrant has been issued for a Peach Bottom Township man who police say attempted to rape a 19-year-old woman on Monday.
Donald Michael Kloch, 51, of Clover Trail, also faces three counts of attempted homicide.
Kloch and the woman were in a bedroom of the man's home about 1:40 p.m. when he grabbed a double-barrel shotgun and allegedly attempted to rape her, according to police.
The woman was able to get up from the bed and tried to leave the room, but Kloch, with the shotgun still in his right hand, grabbed the woman's hair with his left hand and pulled her back toward the bed, according to court documents.
As he was pulling the woman back toward the bed, the shotgun fired the round hit the floor near the woman's feet, documents state.
Call: During the attempted rape, the woman's cellphone rang and as she answered it to talk to her mother, Kloch ripped the phone out of her hand and put it on a dresser but didn't hang it up, documents state.
The woman's mother could her the woman screaming for help, police said.
Kloch held the woman down as he attempted to undress her, police said, until they heard two men enter the home.
When the men entered the bedroom, Kloch pushed the woman aside and pointed the shotgun at one of the men, documents state.
The second man and the woman grabbed the shotgun in an attempt to get it away from Kloch. As the man was grabbing the gun with one hand, he was punching Kloch with the other hand, documents state.
As the other man jumped on Kloch's chest, pinning the gun to Kloch's chest, the gun went off and the round went through a wall. After it fired, Kloch warned the woman and the two men that he still had one round left in the chamber, documents state.
The gun fired a third time, and one of the men was able to get the gun away from Kloch and hit Kloch's head with it.
The woman and the men were able to get out of the house, and Kloch told them, "I am going to kill you all if I find you," documents state.
Charges: Kloch faces three counts each of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault, terroristic threats, and reckless endangerment. He also faces one count each of attempted rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, false imprisonment and unlawful restraint, according to online court documents.
Police describe Kloch as a 6-foot, 200-pound white man with brown and gray short hair. He was last seen wearing boxer shorts and a green T-shirt, police said.
