A Linton man has been arrested on charges of criminal confinement and battery of a woman.
28 year old Richard C. Ausman was arrested early Thursday after police were called to the Greene County General Hospital to talk to the alleged victim.
The 18-year-old Worthington woman told police that Ausman hit her several times and wouldn’t let her leave his home in the 900 block of Glenburn.
She had multiple visible injuries according to police.
The woman told police that she managed to escape without her sweatshirt, shoes and her cell phone.
With search warrant in hand police retrieved those items and took Ausman into custody.
Ausman's bond is set at $15,000.
