Qld woman held captive for 'several hours'

AAP logoAAP 4/10/2016

A man will face court accused of repeatedly assaulting a woman he held captive for several hours at a home in far north Queensland.

The 34-year-old allegedly refused to let the woman leave the home in the Cairns suburb of Manoora on September 25 after the pair got into an argument.

Police say the woman, aged in her 30s, suffered multiple injuries including burns and lacerations during the ordeal, which she was eventually able to flee and seek help from a neighbour.

The man has been charged with six offences, including torture and deprivation of liberty, and is due to face the Cairns Magistrates Court next month.
