(BEDFORD) - A father and daughter were arrested after they allegedly beat up the man’s girlfriend Monday.

Marty D. Lane, 46, 11841 U.S. 50 West and his daughter Kayla Lane, 20, 1871 Dixie Highway, were charged with criminal confinement, a Class D felony. Marty was also charged with battery resulting in injury, a Class A misdemeanor.

The Lanes posted a $505 bond each, and were released from the Lawrence County Jail.

According to a court affidavit, the Lanes beat up and forced Tanya Shidler, Marty Lane's girlfriend into a car.

Shidler told police Marty Lane hit her in the face repeatedly, while his daughter, Kayla, held her down.

The couple then forced Shidler, who was at a friend's house, into a car. Kayla drove, while Marty Lane kept his arm around the woman's throat..

Shidler told police she was able to escape from the car twice, but each time Marty Lane told his daughter to catch her and she did, holding Shidler down until Marty Lane could begin attacking her again, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Shidler told police she was able to escape by running across a field, through a wooded area and back to her friend's home.
