DARTMOUTH - A 24-year-old man is facing a slew of charges after a 22-year-old 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 the 22-year-old was later removed against her will and driven to an address on Upper Patridge Road in Preston where she continued to be assaulted.

The 25-year-old was eventually arrested and is 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 – the other is a 21-year-old woman – were both treated and released from hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The domestic assault relates to the accused and the 22-year-old woman, but police aren’t releasing their specific relationship.

The 21-year-old victim is also known to the accused.

Geographic location: Dartmouth, Upper Patridge Road, Preston
