Authorities have captured a Peach Bottom Township man accused of trying to rape a young woman and trying to kill her and two men who came to her aid.
A Pennsylvania State Police fugitive task force and members of the U.S. Marshals Service and Maryland State Police tracked down Donald Michael Kloch on Wednesday in Maryland, according to police. He was arrested without incident.
Kloch, 51, of Clover Trail, now faces extradition to York County where he will be charged with three counts each of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault, making terroristic threats and reckless endangerment, plus one count each of attempted rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, false imprisonment and unlawful restraint.
State police said the incident happened at 1:40 p.m. Monday at Kloch's home. No one was hurt, despite the fact that three rounds from Kloch's shotgun were fired during a struggle, according to police.
Police did not immediately say what city Kloch was found in, or whether he was inside a home.
The allegations: Police allege Kloch brandished a double-barrel shotgun and tried to rape a 19-year-old woman in his home.
When she tried to flee, he grabbed her by the hair and pulled her back toward his bed, police allege, and during that struggle the shotgun went off, firing a round into the floor near the woman's feet.
Two men -- ages 60 and 62 -- rushed into the bedroom to help, at which point Kloch pushed the woman aside and pointed the shotgun at one of the men, police allege.
One of the men grabbed the gun with one hand, and both he and the other man struggled with Kloch, police said. During that scuffle two more rounds were fired, according to police; at least one went through a wall.
At that point the men got the gun away from Kloch, police said.
Before fleeing his home in boxer shorts and a T-shirt, Kloch told them, "I am going to kill you all if I find you," charging documents state.
