LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania man has been ordered to stand trial on charges that he handcuffed himself to a woman and then struck her several times in the head with a brick last summer.

LNP newspapers (https://bit.ly/2dLqwrV ) report that 35-year-old James Dale Foster of Lancaster waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday on Lancaster County charges of aggravated assault, unlawful restraint, simple assault and reckless endangerment.

Police allege that Foster handcuffed himself to the victim Aug. 21 in an attempt to force her into the basement of his home. The victim told officers that Foster struck her with a brick and slammed her head against the wall before both of them fell down his basement steps. She then fled to a neighbor’s home.

Foster’s attorney says his client is remorseful.
