Man arrested after trying to stop woman from calling 911

A Jamestown man who damaged a woman's apartment and held her face down on a bed as she tried to call 911 faces a misdemeanor charge of unlawful imprisonment, Jamestown police said.

Adam R. Lanphear, 44, was arrested as he tried to run out a basement door on East 6th Street, in the building where the incident occurred, according to police.

Officers said they responded around 2:30 p.m. Saturday when a caller told them a woman could be heard screaming. The officers realized the screams had come from the woman's apartment.

Lanphear, who also was charged with two counts of criminal mischief, was placed in the city jail to await arraignment.
