Dalton Allen Collen

A third arrest was made Saturday in connection with a Kidnapping and Assault of a woman on Ledo Lane, Fountain Inn. This suspect is reportedly the victim’s husband. 27-year-old Dalton Allen Collen of Ledo Lane, Fountain Inn is charged with Kidnapping, 1st Degree Domestic Violence and 1st Degree Assault and Battery. Warrants allege that on June 6th on Ledo Lane he prohibited the victim from being able to escape an assault by forcibly pinning her by her dominant arm against a gate while she was being viciously assaulted by a co-defendant. He is further accused of participating in a kidnapping with other co-defendants where he is accused of preventing his wife’s ability to escape or defend herself by forcibly pinning her dominant arm against a gate and also took her cell phone to prevent her calling for help. This allegedly occurred in front of their two young children on Ledo Lane June 6th.

Mr. Collen is accused of assaulting another woman that day on Leddo Lane by striking her in the chest, causing her to fall to the ground, this occurring during the commission of Kidnapping and Domestic Assault involving the victim’s daughter.

Cash or surety bonds were set totaling $50,000 on the three charges. Dalton Allen Collen remained in the Johnson Detention Center this morning. Another man and a female have also been charged with Kidnapping and Assault in the case, as we reported last week.
