ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque man accused of blinding his teenage girlfriend with pliers has been indicted by a Bernalillo County grand jury.

Authorities say 38-year-old David Cordova remains jailed on a $350,000 bond. It’s unclear if he has an attorney yet.

A grand jury on Monday charged Cordova with kidnapping, several counts of child abuse and seven counts of criminal sexual penetration.

Cordova was arrested on March 12.

Albuquerque police had been searching for Cordova since the Feb. 16 alleged attack on his 15-year-old girlfriend.

Police say Cordova became upset after someone threatened to expose his relationship with the teen.

He allegedly forced the girl into his vehicle at gunpoint, beat her and stabbed her in one eye with a pair of pliers before refusing to take her to a hospital.
