SALINA, Kan. (AP) – A central Kansas man is accused of holding a woman captive for six hours, threatening her with a knife and choking her.

The Salina Journal reports that 31-year-old Clinton Cheney of Salina is charged with domestic battery, aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping and criminal threat.

Salina Police Capt. Mike Sweeney says the woman reported being confronted by an acquaintance Thursday morning, leading to an argument.

Sweeney says the woman then was held against her will, threatened with a knife and choked to the point of her nearly passing out. She eventually managed to escape.

It’s not immediately clear if Cheney has an attorney.
