Swanton man charged with kidnapping, assault

May 16, 2020 GMT

A Swanton man accused of kidnapping a woman and holding her against her will for more than a month has turned himself in to police.

Authorities had been looking for 31-year-old Kevin Daskalides since Thursday, when a witness reported seeing a man dragging a woman into a home. Police say he evaded capture while troopers helped the woman, who told them she had been held for more than a month and repeatedly assaulted.

Daskalidis turned himself in on Friday and was charged with kidnapping, assault and other charges. It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
