(NEW CASTLE) - A New Castle man faces numerous charges after he allegedly beat and threatened a woman with a gun and a knife.

28-year-old Adam Richard Young was arrested for two counts of intimidation, pointing a firearm, strangulation, four counts of domestic battery, and criminal mischief.

According to court documents, a woman walked into New Castle Police Headquarters on Saturday, April 2 around 8:45 p.m. and reported that her boyfriend had beaten her.

The woman told police Young confined her to their home several days ago. Court documents describe the victim's account of the alleged abuse she suffered during that time.

According to the victim, Young snapped her glasses in half, stomped on her laptop, slapped her across the face and punched her in the ribs.

He also allegedly pinned her against a dining room wall, and pointed a pistol to her head.

Young also allegedly choked her, threatened to break her neck, and stuffed her head in the oven.

According to the victim, Young placed a knife against her side, and told her he was going to "Slice her open and play with her intestines."

Young also forced the victim's jaw open, and spit in her mouth.

The victim says she was able to escape when he ordered her to sit on the couch, and she saw that the front door was wide open. The victim told police she ran out the door, and she fled the area yelling for help.

A man in a truck heard her yelling, so he picked her up and dropped her off at the police station. According to police, she was only wearing a tank top and pajama pants, and she was barefoot.

After officers spoke with the victim, they drove to her home on Plum Street, and they took Young into custody.

Officers obtained a search warrant for the home, and they found a semi-automatic handgun and a rifle in the dining room, according to the report. Police also found hair matching the victim's in the oven.

Young was taken to the Henry County Jail, and he is scheduled to appear in court for a jury trial on July 26.
