SOMERSWORTH – A local registered sex offender is being held on $50,000 cash-only bail charged with the alleged kidnapping and sexual assault of another man.

William Pandolfi, 53, is also charged with obstructing a report of crime for allegedly stopping the 38-year-old man from completing a text message requesting police by knocking a cell phone out of his hand while saying, “You ain’t calling the police.”

Court records show Pandolfi lives at in an apartment at 9 High St. It is not clear where Pandolfi and the man were when the alleged kidnapping and assault occurred.

Pandolfi allegedly restrained his victim. “I’ve raped guys in prison, and am going to enjoy raping you because you’re pretty,” he allegedly said.

Pandolfi, who is 5’5” and weighs about 150 pounds according to court records, allegedly touched the chest and buttocks of the man during the assault.

The incident was reported to police on July 31, and Pandolfi was arrested Monday afternoon as the result of the investigation. The incident is alleged to have happened on that day about 4 p.m.

Pandolfi refused bail and was arraigned Tuesday at Strafford County Superior Court. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 cash bail at the county jail pending indictment.

Records from the New Hampshire Department of Safety show that Pandolfi was convicted of raping someone under the age of 18 in April of 1998. He was released from prison in April of 2015 and is not on parole, probation or supervised release.

Pandolfi also was convicted of cruelty to animals in 1991.
