A Troy man is facing charges of domestic assault and kidnapping after he allegedly punched a woman in the mouth and took her keys and phone.
When police arrived at the boat dock where the incident occurred in the 400 block of Jordan Road in Moscow Mills, 45-year-old John A. Ray, Jr. sped off in a boat away from the dock.
According to a probable cause statement, the victim had a swollen and bloody lip consistent with being punched with a closed fist.
Ray, who has previously been convicted of assault, was later apprehended by law enforcement.
