DONIPHAN, Neb. -- The Hall County Sheriff's Department says a Grand Island man was arrested Saturday morning for kidnapping and assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

The Sheriff's Department said 32-year old Jose Torrez drove to his ex-girlfriend's home in Doniphan, took her to his home in Grand Island for a short time, then drove her back home.

The department said she was gone for around an hour.

During the time she was with him, authorities say Torrez slapped her at least once, leaving her with a bloody nose and some scrapes and cuts.

Once home, the woman called the Nebraska State Patrol, and Torrez was found and arrested.

He now faces charges of kidnapping, domestic assault, and criminal mischief.
