Search For Franklin Couple Wanted In Assault Incidents Continues

August 29, 2013

Venango County Crimestoppers says police continue to search for a Franklin couple in connection with a pair of physical assaults on women last month.

Law enforcement officials say they have been unable to locate either 27 year-old Terence Loggins or 28 year-old Virginia Umstead.

Police say the pair were identified as the man and woman who followed another woman into an Oil City convenience store parking lot early on the morning of July 19.  It is alleged that Umstead hit the woman in the back of the head, forcing the victim’s face into a window casement.

Loggins is accused of assaulting another woman early in the morning of July 21 in the parking lot of a bar in Franklin’s Third Ward.  The victim in the Franklin incident required hospitalization in Erie.

Investigators say both Loggins and Umstead are on parole in connection with prior drug delivery charges.

Information about the suspects’ whereabouts may be given to police officials in Oil City or Franklin, or by calling Crimestoppers at 676 – 9162.
