A New Hampshire man is facing charges in Vermont after allegedly sexually assaulting a woman and leaving her on the side of a highway to walk.
Vermont State Police say 23-year-old Michael Glynn of Woodsville, New Hampshire, was arrested Monday and charged with aggravated sexual assault, kidnapping, two counts of domestic assault and unlawful mischief.
Authorities say they started their investigation on Sunday when troopers responded to Route 302 west in South Ryegate for a report of a woman who had been sexually assaulted and left on the roadway.

Investigators found that Glynn picked up the victim at her home with his vehicle and drove to a sand pit off of Route 302, where he sexually and physically assaulted her in the car, according to police.
Glynn then allegedly tried to forcefully remove the victim from the car after the assault and left her beside the roadway to walk.
He was arrested at the state police barracks in St. Johnsbury on Monday, and then taken to St. Johnsbury Correctional Complex after being held on $15,000 bail.
It's unclear if he has an attorney.
