Middletown man gets 5 to 15 years for Christmas Day kidnapping

Posted

A man charged with kidnapping a Middletown woman and taking her to Louisiana in December 2015 was sentenced to 5 to 15 years in state prison July 7 by Dauphin County Court Judge John Cherry.

Noah L. Thomas, 37, of Middletown, pleaded guilty to kidnapping to inflict injury/terror. He pleaded no contest to aggravated assault, robbery, terroristic threats, and unlawful restraint, according to online court documents.

He was credited with serving 558 days in Dauphin County Prison.

Middletown police say Thomas and the woman were driving back from a hike on Christmas Day in 2015 when they began to argue. The woman got out, but Thomas forced her back into the car and he and the woman drove to Louisiana, where Thomas has relatives.

He was arrested in Lake Charles, Louisiana, on Dec. 31, 2015, and extradited to Pennsylvania.
