The Morning Call - - LOCAL NEWS - By Manuel Gamiz Jr.

A 58-year-old man tied a woman to a re­cliner early Tues­day in Moore Township and sex­u­ally as­saulted her, po­lice said.

Moore Township po­lice were dis­patched at 3:19 a.m. Tues­day to a home on Mono­cacy Drive for a re­ported rape in progress, find­ing a woman in the kitchen with rope around her wrists and James R. Moore sit­ting on a chair, wear­ing only a shirt, ac­cord­ing to court records.

The woman told po­lice that she fell asleep on the re­cliner and woke up with her hands tied be­hind her, court records say. She said Moore then re­moved her un­der­wear and sex­u­ally as­saulted her. She tried to fight him off by kick­ing him, po­lice said.

Po­lice ques­tioned Moore, and he ad­mit­ted sex­u­ally as­sault­ing the woman and ty­ing her with rope, adding, “What’s wrong with that?” court records say.

Moore was charged with un­law­ful re­straint, in­de­cent as­sault and ha­rass­ment.

Moore was ar­raigned by Dis­trict Judge Nancy Matos Gon­za­lez and was sent to Northamp­ton County Jail un­der $50,000 bail.
