ELLSWORTH — After eluding police for the past 10 months, a 21-year-old Ohio man is behind bars in Maine.
Timothy Pumneo was arrested in Ohio last Friday on a warrant issued by the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, the sheriff’s office said Tuesday in a news release.
Pumneo is charged with sexual assault, furnishing illegal drugs, sexual abuse of a minor, and criminal restraint.
The sheriff’s office said those charges stem from a Nov.13, 2019 report that an underage girl was missing from her home in Hancock.
She was quickly found and reunited with her family, the sheriff’s office said.
On Monday, a Hancock County judge set Pumneo’s bail at $50,000. Pumneo has been unable to post bail and remains at Hancock County Jail.
