Abingdon man charged with kidnapping, sexually assaulting ex-girlfriend

An Abingdon man was held without bail after being charged with kidnapping and sexually assaulting a woman with whom he had been in a relationship.

Glenn Horner, 43, was arrested last Friday for an incident at Ten Oaks Motel, in the 3900 block of Pulaski Highway, where his address is also listed.

A woman told police that day that a man with whom she was recently in a relationship pulled her into a room in the hotel, according to a statement of charges.

She said he pulled out a knife and held it against her stomach while forcibly sexually assaulting her.

She identified the man as Horner, telling police they broke up last week but he has been texting her a lot, according to the charging documents.

Deputies entered the hotel room and found Horner sitting on the couch listening to the radio at an "extremely loud volume," while an empty sheath for a straight blade knife lay on the floor.

A knife was found between the couch cushions and Horner was arrested.

At a bail review Tuesday, District Court Judge Mimi Cooper ordered him to be held without bond and approved a peace order, to which the victim consented through July 22.

Horner has five prior convictions and two pending charges of driving while his license was suspended, an assistant state's attorney said.

He was also considered a flight risk, as he has an unstable address, and a danger to the community.

Horner was charged with kidnapping, first-degree assault, first-degree sex offense, second-degree assault, second-degree sex offense, third-degree sex offense and fourth-degree sex offense.

Also at Tuesday's bail review, a 33-year-old man from the 3400 block of Philadelphia Road was ordered held without bail for allegedly assaulting his wife.

The man, who is not being identified to avoid identifying the victim, allegedly hit her in the face and ultimately knocked out her front teeth, according to the statement of charges.

He was charged with second-degree assault and resisting arrest.
