A man who reportedly held a woman in an apartment and severely beat her has been indicted by a Scioto County grand jury for kidnapping and felonious assault.
Portsmouth Police had reported that a woman told them Nin B. Sang, 34, of 64 Buckeye Circle, Columbus, had beaten her severely and would not let her escape from her apartment over night, August 24-25, 2012.
Police were called to 1723 Wayne Ave., Apartment I, where Krista Tackett, 23, of that apartment, ran to them telling officers she had been beaten by Sang, who had left the scene in a truck.
According to the police report, she told authorities he would not stop kicking and punching her, and when she tried to escape, would throw her back down and kick and punch her.
Several minutes later the truck was spotted at the Speedway parking lot at the corner of Gallia Street and Kendall Avenue in Portsmouth, and Sang was arrested.
Police also charged Tackett in a warrant issued for failure to appear.
