JEFFERSON COUNTY SA ISSUES NEW WARRANT FOR MAN HELD IN INDIANA

JEFFERSON COUNTY — The Jefferson County State’s Attorney has issued a new warrant for a 39-year-old Mt. Vernon man currently in the Vanderburgh County Indiana jail.

Victor Serrano was arrested by Indiana authorities last month following a high-speed chase.

Serrano is accused of seriously injuring a pregnant woman in Mt. Vernon, then fleeing to Indiana. Once there, he reportedly led Indiana police on a chase that exceeded 100 miles an hour.

Indiana troopers laid down spike strips to try and stop him, but he continued until he crashed into a trooper’s vehicle and was arrested.

The new warrant in Jefferson County charges Serrano with attempted first-degree murder, attempted intentional homicide of a child, aggravated kidnapping, and aggravated domestic battery.

Serrano is awaiting extradition from Indiana on these charges.
