VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) -- An elderly Florida man arrested in what authorities allege was a bizarre kidnapping plot in a tony Philadelphia suburb is now facing even more charges.
The Delaware County Daily Times says Delaware County prosecutors asked at a preliminary hearing Tuesday to add new charges against 76-year-old John Felder of Miami including attempted kidnapping and attempted unlawful restraint.
Radnor Township police allege that 76-year-old John Felder of Miami tried to use a stun gun on a Villanova man last week while posing as a flower deliveryman.
They allege that he had a "hit list" of possible ransom targets and a rental property in the Pocono Mountains to keep any victims.
Felder denied wrongdoing and his daughter told reporters that relatives are concerned about her father's health and well-being.
