Officials arrested a local man after he allegedly kidnapped his girlfriend and threatened her with a knife.

Daniel Chevalier, 26, 1030 E. Court St. Apt. 10, was charged March 26 with kidnapping.

According to a police report, a female reported a physical and sexual assault to the Iowa City police.

She told police Chevalier held her in her apartment against her will on March 24, preventing her from leaving.

The report said Chevalier allegedly pushed her away from the door and shut, locked, and chained it before allegedly slapping and punching her.

The woman also told police Chevalier allegedly ripped off her dress and kept her down on her bed.

The report said the victim told police Chevalier allegedly held his forearm against her neck cutting off her air supply, grabbed a knife from her dresser, and threatened to cut her with it.

Second-degree kidnapping is a Class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
