Binghamton Man Charged with Unlawful Imprisonment
A man wanted for allegedly physically abusing a woman and restraining her in a bedroom in the town of Conklin has been arrested.
Authorities say Rodney Clark Jr. of Binghamton was taken into custody early October 8 in the Town of Dickinson.
According to the Broome County Sheriff's Office, Clark had been sought in connection with a September 18 incident in a Conklin Road mobile home.
Investigators say when the woman eventually freed herself, Clark fled and was not at the residence when sheriff's deputies arrived.
A deputy learned Clark may have been hiding at his father's home in the Town of Dickinson. Around 9 a.m., the suspect ran off after he was spotted in the driveway of that residence.
After a foot pursuit, a deputy caught up with Clark and utilized a Taser device to take him into custody in the yard of a home on Glenwood Road.
Clark faces felony counts of unlawful imprisonment and criminal contempt. He also was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and harassment in connection with the Conklin incident. He was charged with resisting arrest for Thursday's incident.
Clark was sent to Broome County Jail without bail.
