DETAILS: Deputies were called to the ER of the Chester River Medical Center for a report of a sex assault occurring the day before.
The female victim had visible injuries to her head, neck, bruises to her side, cuts on her legs and a black eye.

Victim stated she had argued with Kindle and left going to her apartment in Chestertown. A little while later, Kindle arrived at her apartment. Victim states Kindle forced her into a car and drove to the Courtyard Inn and tried to force her in a room. Unable to get her in a room, he forced her back in the car and drove to a location on Leverage Road.
Victim states she was dragged into woods where Kindle forced her to the ground and began to hit her in the face and kick her in the side. Her clothes were ripped as Kindle began to assault her. Victim advised she doesn’t recall how she got home but ran to a friend’s residence who called the police.

Kindle was located by Chestertown Police as he was walking in the parking lot of Chester River Medical Center.

It was also learned that Kindle was wanted for escape from the Morris Community Corrections facility in Delaware and a Registered Sex Offender in Delaware for a 4th degree rape of a victim under the age of 16 in 2001.
After Kindle was processed at Sheriff’s Headquarters, a District Court Commissioner held Kindle without bail.
