WOODBINE, Iowa (AP) - A western Iowa man accused of confining his girlfriend and psychologically torturing her has been arrested.

Online court records on Monday listed a first-degree kidnapping charge against 50-year-old Daniel Yate, of Woodbine. He was detained after his girlfriend told police last week that he assaulted her at his home and wouldn’t let her leave.

Woodbine Police Chief Michael Jensen tells the Omaha World-Herald (https://bit.ly/1GHhdEf ) that the girlfriend accused Yates of binding her and threatening to throw her in a nearby river. The girlfriend says Yates also sat on her chest and opened and closed a knife.

Records show the woman had injuries consistent with her allegations and a hospital visit revealed a broken rib.

Court documents don’t yet list an attorney for Yates to seek comment on his behalf.
