    INDEPENDENCE, Iowa - A 23-year-old Independence man has pleaded guilty to two counts, including kidnapping, in the sexual assault of a woman he stalked at a local bar.

    Matthew Noack faces up to 15 years in prison when he's sentenced in November. He will also have to register as a sex offender.

    Police say in January, Noack followed his victim out of a bar in Independence after closing time, then forcibly picked her up, carried her behind a building and sexually assaulted her.
