MOORHEAD, Minn. (KFGO-AM) - Bond was set at $500,000, or $250,000 with conditions for a man accused of breaking into a Comstock, Minn. home and trying to kidnap his ex-girlfriend.
Fifty-two-year-old William Dean is facing charges including attempted kidnapping and assault with a dangerous weapon. Investigators say Dean physically assaulted the woman and shocked her with a taser.
Clay County Attorney Brian Melton says he asked for high bail because Dean is a threat to public safety.
Dean was tracked down by cell-phone towers as he left the area for Bismarck. He was brought back to Moorhead Thursday after he waived extradition.
