    A federal grand jury has indicted the man charged with kidnapping a woman and her 5-year-old son in New Hampshire and later sexually assaulting the woman in Vermont.

    Documents filed in U.S. District Court in Burlington on Thursday say Everett Simpson was charged in a four-count indictment.

    The 41-year-Simpson is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.

    Simpson allegedly left a Bradford drug abuse treatment center Jan. 4 and traveled to Manchester, New Hampshire, where the alleged kidnapping took place. He is then alleged to have brought the woman and her son back to Vermont, where the woman was assaulted.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    Simpson then allegedly fled to Pennsylvania. He was apprehended after he crashed a stolen car while fleeing police.

    He's being held without bail. His lawyer declined to comment Thursday.
