TROTWOOD, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – A man wanted by Trotwood police in connection with a stabbing and an assault on a 90-year-old woman led crews on a search through a corn field.

Dash cam video released by Trotwood police shows officers driving through the field looking for Bill McClellan.

In the video, you can see them finding an abandoned SUV. Crews didn’t end up finding McClellan in the field, but he was taken into custody a short time later.

It all started when McClellan was accused of stabbing and robbing a man in Preble County. Crews arrested him, but he was somehow able to escape from custody.

Investigators said while he was on the run, he assaulted an elderly woman.

He’s expected back in court on Friday, and faces several charges that include felonious assault, kidnapping and robbery.
