Harkey

ROCKFORD - A grand jury sitting in Rockford has returned indictments against a Roscoe man accused of attacking and sexually assaulting a woman in March.

Matthew S. Harkey, 43, has been indicted on charges of attempted first degree murder, aggravated criminal sexual assault, aggravated kidnapping, home invasion, stalking and residential burglary.

Winnebago County State's Attorney Marilyn Hite Ross announced the indictments Thursday.

On March 13, Roscoe police officers responded to the 5900 block of McDonald Road to assist an injured 34-year-old woman. Detectives determined the victim was abducted from her home in Rockford, put in a trunk of a car and taken to a residence in the 5900 Block of McDonald Road where she reportedly was physically and sexually assaulted.

She was bound to a workout bench in the basement of the home, but the victim was able to escape and alert authorities.

Harkey, who is a registered sex offender, was identified as the suspect. He was captured in Edgar County, Illinois on March 14 after a chase involving police.

Harkey is scheduled to appear in Winnebago County Circuit Court for an arraignment hearing on April 30 before Judge Joseph McGraw.
