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 â€“ the other is a 21-year-old woman â€“ 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 arenâ€™t releasing their specific relationship.
The 21-year-old victim is also known to the accused.
