MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — Moorhead police have arrested a man accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a female he knew.
Police arrested the 51-year-old man just after midnight Sunday. He was taken into custody without incident.
A female told investigators Saturday that the man held her against her will for more than 24 hours at his home. She says while she was held captive the man beat her, sexually assaulted her and stabbed her with a knife.
The female had a stab wound to her upper left chest. She told police from a Fargo, N.D., hospital that she was able to escape by districting the man and running from the home.
