HANFORD, CALIF. (AP) - Authorities say a California man jealous over a message on his girlfriend's Facebook page tortured and imprisoned her for four days while their children were in the house.
Kings County sheriff's deputies arrested 36-year-old Anthony Lozano at his Hanford home over the weekend on suspicion of false imprisonment, kidnapping, torture and other charges.
Sheriff's Cmdr. Dave Putnam says Lozano accused the 23-year-old victim of having an affair after he saw the Facebook message.
Lozano is suspected of grabbing the woman's hair, dragging her and threatening to kill her before choking her with a rope and a towel.
Putnam said the couple's child and another child belonging to the victim were in the house at the time.
Lozano remained in Kings County custody Monday evening on $725,000 bail. It was unknown if he had an attorney.
