BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Morgantown, W.Va., man has been arrested near Bismarck in connection with a home invasion in Minnesota.

The 52-year-old William Dean was arrested Tuesday night. Police say they used cellphone towers to locate Dean while he was driving from Moorhead, Minn., to Bismarck.

Authorities in court records allege that Dean broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home Thursday, physically assaulted her and shocked her with a stun gun. Records show Dean wore white gloves and a nylon hood over his head during the incident.

He faces seven charges including attempted kidnapping, second degree assault and first degree burglary. The attempted kidnapping charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

Minnesota authorities have filed a motion in the Burleigh County court to extradite Dean.

Records don’t list an attorney for Dean.
