A 43-year-old man who allegedly abducted a woman and assaulted her in a vacant house on Green Street last week has been arrested and charged in connection with the incident, according to the Princeton Police Department.
Arnoldo Agreda-Rodriguez, 43, of 29 Green Street, was arrested at his home and charged with issuing terroristic threats and simple assault Monday, police said. The victim and Mr. Agreda-Rodriguez were previously acquainted, and she was not randomly targeted.
The 48-year-old victim was walking north on Witherspoon Street near Green Street around 9:45 p.m. Jan. 22 when Mr. Agreda-Rodriguez approached her from behind and struck her, police said.
He took her to a vacant house at 20 Green Street, where the assault continued until she was able to escape by jumping from a window, police said. She was taken to Capital Health Regional Medical Center for treatment of multiple injuries.
Bail for Mr. Agreda-Rodriguez was set at $15,000, with a 10-percent option. He was taken to the Mercer County Correctional Center after he was unable to post bail. 
