KINGMAN - A 22-year-old woman was able to fight off an alleged would-be rapist and call Kingman Police Sunday night.

Craig A. Gollihar, 52, of Kingman allegedly attempted to tie up the woman and sexually assault her before she broke free during a struggle and escaped from a motel room in the 3300 block of Andy Devine Avenue at about 7 p.m.

The woman reportedly sustained minor injuries in the fight, according to Kingman Police spokeswoman Jennifer Sochocki.

Kingman Police officers arrested Gollihar on felony charges of aggravated assault while victim is bound and unlawful imprisonment.

He was taken into custody without incident.

I think this slime should be taken off the streets! This makes me sick, when people are helping others, and this happens. I hope the woman is ok, and seeks help if she needs to.

Story sounds suspicious, 22 year old woman and much older man! Was this a tryst gone awry or a gal being assaulted via no fault of her own or a unhappy with the agreed payment for services situation?

@one word....not laughing at you or the poor girl here, but everybody knows about Craiglist - go on YouTube and watch Roommates From Hell and other Craiglist roommate disasters. It's anywhere in the U.S. Incidentally, I'm staying at a monthly motel for now, and when the cleaning gal or any woman staffer comes in for any reason, I open the drapes at least and leave the door open if weather permits, and usually leave for lunch or whatever until they are done, if practical. This sort of thing should be policy.

the 22 yr old was just a desk clerk at the motel doing her job, she was helping him with the remote to the tv and he attacker her....luckily she knew to fight back as much as she could to be able to get out of there.

Craigslist. If you want to really see how sick the underbelly of Mohave Co is visit Personal ads on Craigslist.

You probably wont go back to look a second time. Ever.

I wonder what the rest of the story is?

What circumstances brought a 22 year old lady together with a 52 year old man in a motel?
