A 25-year-old man was arrested after a woman reported that she had been held against her will and assaulted at a home in Eastern Passage.
Cole Harbour RCMP say the report came in around 8 p.m. on Tuesday. A 22-year-old woman told police she had been held for a period of time against her will. She reported that while she was being held she was assaulted and police say "property was extorted from her."
She was not injured during the assault.
A 25-year-old man was later arrested without incident, but has since been released on conditions, and is expected to appear in court Oct. 8 to face charges of assault and forcible confinement.
Police say the man and woman know each other.
