An Oil City man is facing several charges for assaulting a woman in a car near a business on Riverside Drive.
Franklin state police said Cy Gaines-Colon, 45, made unwanted physical and verbal contact with a woman and locked her inside his vehicle on Nov. 23.
The woman told the Minich’s employee that she had accepted a ride from Gaines-Colon, who then made unwanted advances toward her. When he left the vehicle to go into Skinny’s Six Pack Shack, she said she realized that she was unable to open the car doors.
Gaines-Colon has been charged with unlawful restraint, indecent assault and harassment.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled Jan. 16 in Venango County Central Court.
