A trial has been set for a Radnor man accused of kidnapping and rape.

Anthony G. Schumm, 49, of Radnor, appeared in Delaware County Common Pleas Court Friday morning and pleaded not guilty to four counts of rape, first-degree felonies; two counts of kidnapping, first-degree felonies and two counts of sexual battery, third-degree felonies.

Assistant County Prosecutor Mark Sleeper told Delaware County Common Pleas Magistrate Kristin Schultz that the alleged criminal activity happened on Oct. 22, 2016 through Oct. 23, 2016, in Delaware County.

Sleeper alleged that on Oct. 22, Schumm was at a party in Delaware County with a number of friends when he saw a female at the party pass out on a couch. Sleeper alleged that Schumm went into the room with the passed out woman, woke her up and forced her to perform a sexual act.

Sleeper said another person at the party heard noises coming from the bedroom and later saw Schumm leave a bathroom. The other person then went into the bathroom to discover the intoxicated woman. Sleeper said the victim said she woke up to Schumm sexually assaulting her. Sleeper said half of the charges are for the activity on the couch and the other half are for the activity in the bathroom.

Schultz told Schumm that he faces between three to 11 years in prison for each of the first-degree felonies and between 9 to 36 months in prison for the sexual battery charges.

After accepting his not guilty plea, Schultz scheduled Schumm to stand trial on July 11 and released him on a personal recognizance bond, but said he faces an $8,000 fine if he violates the condition of the bond.
