from our friends at WTVO:

Update from our friends at WTVO – According to court records, a 34-year-old Rockford woman was found naked, bleeding and handcuffed to a workout bench she was dragging behind her after she was abducted from her Rockford home.

She was located at a residence in the 5900 block of Mcdonald rd in Roscoe (Matthew Harkey Mothers House)

Police say 43-year-old Matthew Harkey abducted the woman from her home on Wednesday, March 13th, and held her captive in the basement of home in Roscoe, where he beat and raped her.

A neighbor in the 5900 block of McDonald Road spotted her in the street after she made her escape, around 1:30 p.m., and called the police.

According to an order of protection filing, the woman told police that she was attacked by Harkey earlier that morning, as he was hiding in her home when she returned home from dropping her children off at school.

According to the victim, Matthew Harkey hit her over the head with a bottle. She fought with him until he choked her and she passed out.


She recalled being wrapped in duct tape and put in the trunk of Harkey’s car, and being driven to Roscoe.  (Matthew Harkey Mothers Residence)

There, he dragged her down to the basement and handcuffed her to an exercise bench and strapped her legs to it.

“He undid the straps and took my underwear, shirt and bra off. My pants had already come off,” she wrote in the order of protection filing.

“This all lasted about 2 hours.” When Harkey allegedly left the house, the woman escaped by dragging the workout bench out of the basement and out of the home
