Bucks County Horror: Man Attempted Rape and Kidnapping a Woman in Parking Lot

A Yardley man was caught within 24 hours of allegedly attempting to rape and kidnap a woman in the parking lot of a Redner’s grocery store in Middletown Township on Tuesday night.

Daniel Pierson, 41, is facing numerous accusations, including a criminal attempt to conduct kidnapping to facilitate a felony, a criminal attempt to commit kidnapping to inflict pain or terror, a criminal attempt to commit rape by forcible persuasion, and others.

According to a notice from the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office on Thursday, Middletown Township Police responded around 8:30 p.m. to a report of an attempted rape and assault on a lady in the parking lot of Redner’s off Lincoln Highway.

According to the statement, the woman informed investigators that she parked her truck in the back of the parking lot and was grabbed from behind by a man nearly soon after getting out, prompting her to scream and attempt to free herself.

They claimed the man refused to release go, and throughout the fight, he was able to pull down her trousers, yell at her to shut talking, and punch her in the face. The release goes on to allege that he raised and moved the woman toward his truck, but she screamed, scaring him away, and he rushed back to it.

“Pierson is known by police to be a methamphetamine user,” the announcement stated.

Pierson was arrested Wednesday afternoon after the woman described the truck as an older blue Ford F-150 or F-250, which was discovered at a property around the 1500 block of Newport Road in Bristol Township. Officials stated that Pierson was driving a different vehicle.

The woman told officers that the event occurred between 7:50 p.m. and 8:10 p.m., and investigators were able to locate a truck that matched her specifications later in the area. According to officials, the truck was tracked back to someone related to Pierson. They claimed Pierson matched the description of the attacker.

Pierson was brought to the Bucks County Correctional Facility on a bail of less than $1 million.
