BEACON FALLS, Conn. (AP) - A Beacon Falls man is set to appear in court on kidnapping and other charges after police say he assaulted his girlfriend and forced her into his vehicle.

The New Haven Register reports (https://bit.ly/1XuSOdr) 23-year-old Christopher Williams is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on charges of second-degree kidnapping, second-degree unlawful restraint, third-degree assault and disorderly conduct.

Police were called to Williams’ residence just after midnight Sunday for a report of a physical altercation. Witnesses told responding officers that Williams had forced a woman into his vehicle before driving away.

Officers found Williams and his girlfriend around 10 a.m. parked about a mile away. Police say the woman didn’t require medical attention.

Williams was released on bond. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
