U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Luzerne County Kidnapping Suspect

Scranton, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of Chloe Isaacs, a 21-year-old woman, wanted for kidnapping to inflict injury and other related offenses.

On June 3, Deputy U.S. Marshals and task force officers assigned to the U.S. Marshals Service’s New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force (NY/NJ RFTF) arrested Isaacs without incident at a residence in Utica, NY. Isaacs was turned over to local authorities pending extradition back to Pennsylvania.

It is alleged that on October 5, 2014 Isaacs played a role in the vicious attack on a female. The victim was kidnapped, beaten, had her throat slit and left for dead in a wooded area in Luzerne County. On June 2, an arrest warrant was issued in Luzerne County by Magisterial District Judge Michael G. Dotzel, charging Isaacs with kidnapping to inflict injury, unlawful restraint/serious bodily injury, false imprisonment, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “This significant arrest takes a dangerous suspect off the streets, and provides the victim with some measure of justice.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with personnel from the Pennsylvania State Police, Scranton Police Department, Utica Police Department and the USMS NY/NJ RFTF.
