While the search continues for a Duquesne man in the abduction and beating of a girlfriend, a hearing has been postponed for the man's cousin and alleged accomplice.

Lynell Eric Farrar, 21, of Wilkinsburg was scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Tuesday before Magisterial District Judge Scott H. Schricker in Turtle Creek. It was postponed until Dec. 17 at 8:30 a.m. Farrar is free until then on $50,000 bond.

Farrar faces the same charges filed against Christopher Flewellen, 21, of Duquesne in the Nov. 30 incident that began in Homestead and included a chase that ended when the woman's vehicle crashed into a creek along Greensprings Avenue in West Mifflin.

That includes felony counts of aggravated assault, kidnapping and conspiracy, and misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment and conspiracy.

According to the criminal complaint filed with Schricker, Flewellen dragged the woman from her vehicle into a van driven by Farrar. Police said the woman later was beaten repeatedly in the living room and bedroom of an apartment in Duquesne.

The woman was taken by McKeesport Ambulance Rescue Service to UPMC McKeesport.

Flewellen remains at large. Farrar was arrested by Munhall police at a roadblock.
