SWANTON -- Kevin Daskalides, 31, of Swanton is being sought on charges of kidnapping and aggravated domestic assault, according to Vermont State Police.
A woman, whose name was not released by police, reported on Thursday afternoon she had been held against her will for more than a month, Trooper Ashley Farmer reported.
Daskalides also is wanted on charges of reckless endangerment and interference with access to emergency services, police said.
State police said they were called to Homestead Acres about 2:55 p.m. for a possible domestic assault when a witness reported a man dragging a woman back into a residence.
Troopers were able to get the victim to safety and provide medical support, Farmer said. The victim reported she had been repeatedly assaulted while held against her will for more than a month, police said.
The victim received various injuries during the time and was being treated by medical personal, police said.
