Published on May 19, 2014


A 25-year-old man is facing a slew of charges after a woman was kidnapped and assaulted at two different locations in what police are calling a domestic-related incident.

Police say the incident began in the 400 block of Portland Hills Drive in Dartmouth on Sunday between 5 and 9 a.m.

According to police, two women inside the home were assaulted by the suspect, and one was then removed against her will and driven to an address on Upper Partridge Road in Preston where she continued to be assaulted.

The 25-year-old was eventually arrested and is now facing charges of break and enter, kidnapping, forcible confinement, assault causing bodily harm, failure to stop at the scene of an accident and weapons-related offences. He is due in court on Tuesday.

The victims, who are known to the accused, were both treated and released from hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
