A 37-year-old Kunia man was in custody after hitting a woman with a metal baton and terrorizing her over two days, police said.
The man was arrested at his home at 8:45 a.m. Wednesday on suspicion of kidnapping, two counts of second-degree assault, and two counts of abuse.

For two days, the man terrorized the woman, holding her against her will, assaulting her, and trying to strangle her, police said.
