LAKEVIEW, Ark. – A man from Lakeview is facing kidnapping and battery charges after being arrested for a domestic incident on Tuesday.
Assisted by a park ranger, Baxter County authorities say 54-year-old David Gengler is accused of tieing up and beating his 57-year-old female roommate at their home on Greenwood Avenue.
According to the police report, the victim called 911 and officers found her at the home with marks on her wrists, covered in injuries, and possible cigarette burns.
Sheriff John Montgomery says she had to be sent by ambulance to a hospital in Springfield due to her respective serious injuries. Gengler was arrested that night and is currently being held at the Baxter County Detention Center in lieu of a 250-thousand dollar bond.
His first court appearance is scheduled for June 2nd.
