WHITE DEER TOWNSHIP — A Mifflinburg man is jailed in Union County facing felony kidnap and strangulation charges stemming from allegations he repeatedly struck a woman, dragged her into a vehicle and left her in a field.
Daniel Harrison Moll, 50, of Mifflinburg, has been charged by state police with felony strangulation (two counts) and kidnap, misdemeanor counts of unlawful restraint/serious bodily injury and simple assault and a summary count of harassment stemming from an alleged incident Sept. 12-13 near White Deer Trailer Park, White Deer Township, Union County.
Troopers said Moll was engaged in an argument with a woman when he shoved her face into the cushions of a couch and allegedly placed his hands around her throat. Moll allegedly punched the woman in the head and face, then pushed, shoved and dragged the woman to a Ford Focus, where he then drove her to a field.

The woman eventually fled the car and ran to where someone was in a yard. Moll allegedly fled the scene.
Troopers said the woman's mouth area had dried blood and scratches were noticed as well.
Moll is jailed in Union County in lieu of $100,000 bail, according to court records. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 3:15 p.m. Oct. 5 before District Judge Jeffrey Mensch, Mifflinburg.
