FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — A Tetlin Junction man faces multiple felony charges after state troopers say he held his girlfriend against her will and assaulted her for more than 10 hours.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports Alaska State Troopers arrived in the village outside Tok and found the woman with bruises and two black eyes.

She says 44-year-old Tony Tom Titus attempted to strangle her and menaced her with a knife. She says he threatened to shoot her, her children and the police if she reported the assault.

Troopers arrested Titus after finding clumps of the woman’s hair in a garbage can.

He faces charges of kidnapping, second-degree felony assault, third-degree felony assault and two counts of fourth-degree misdemeanor assault.
