SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 News) – A Utah man was arrested for multiple felonies after police said he kidnapped, robbed, physically abused and sexually assaulted his ex-girlfriend last week. 

According to charging documents, Scott Lynwood Perry, 62, was inside the home of his ex-girlfriend on Feb 13 when she arrived home from work. Perry had a knife and backed her into a corner of the kitchen and threatened to stab her. 

The victim said he then stabbed her in her arm and threatened to stab her in the neck if she moved or if anyone came to her door. Perry allegedly told the victim he wanted money and sex so he took her to the bedroom at knifepoint and sexually assaulted her multiple times, documents state. 

He forced her to go to an ATM to withdraw $200. He also had her fill his car with gas, all while holding the knife and threatening her with it. The victim said Perry kicked her out of the car around 8000 West and SR-201 and left her there. 

Perry was charged with three counts forcible sodomy, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, and aggravated sexual assault, all first-degree felonies, and one count third-degree aggravated assault. 

Perry has a lengthy criminal history including several years in and out of the Utah State Prison for aggravated robbery, theft and fraud charges. Perry was a parole fugitive at the time of his arrest.
