On February 28th, 2019 the Glenville Police arrested 38-year-old Mathew Herbert for alleged sex acts with a 14-year-old. Herbert has been charged with rape, criminal sex act and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say Herbert was aware of the pending arrest in January 2019 which led him to flee New York. A Felony warrant was issued for his arrest and he was captured on February 13th, 2019 by the South Abington Police Department in Pennsylvania. He was held as a Fugitive from Justice, then extradited back to Glenville for his arrest.

Herbert was arraigned in Glenville Town Court and remanded to the Schenectady County Jail with no bail.
