MESERVEY, Iowa (AP) – Northern Iowa authorities say they’ve arrested a man whose girlfriend reported that he kidnapped and tortured her and let his dog bite her.

Court records say 41-year-old Charles Albright, of Meservey (meh-ZUR’-vee), is charged with kidnapping and willful injury. His attorney declined to comment Friday.

The records say the woman was held for 12 to 14 hours on Oct. 7 in Meservey, where she was punched, slammed against a floor, shocked with a stun gun and bitten by the dog. She also told officers she was then taken to Sheffield, where he continued attacking her. Her injuries included burns, sinus damage and broken bones in her face as well as bruises on her body and face.

Albright was found and arrested Wednesday in rural Rockwell.
