Semi driver, accused of assaulting a woman who escaped his cab, arrested

Local News

Police arrested Jerome Keyes of Ellisville Mississippi today after a mysterious incident was caught on tape. 

The EPD posted a surveillance video this week of a woman, seemingly nude, sprinting from the cab of a semi truck.  Today, we learn that the suspect wanted in the alleged assault of that woman is now in custody. 

Keyes was arrested around 3:30 this afternoon after the victim identified him in a line-up.  Two other witnesses told police that they saw they saw the truck by seeing a name on the truck, ‘Wayne W. Sell Trucking’ out of Sarver, PA. 

He has been charged with rape, kidnapping, indecent assault, aggravated assault, two counts of simple assault, and terroristic threats and was picked up by EPD, the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force, and other local police departments in Butler, PA. 

Research tells us that Keyes’ current address is Mississipi, but he has previously had Erie, PA residences. 

He and his truck were sent to Erie for processing. 

The investigation is ongoing.  Stay tuned to JET 24 Action News for more details.
