PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) — A Palmdale man has been arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend and keeping her against her will for 10 days in his apartment.

The Daily News of Los Angeles reports 19-year-old Giovanni McKinnis was booked for investigation of attempted murder, kidnapping and false imprisonment. He's being held on $1 million bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.

The woman was found Saturday in an apartment after Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies investigated a report that she had gone missing. Authorities say the woman had been choked and sexually assaulted. She was taken to a nearby hospital for several injuries and later released.

Authorities say the victim's mother saw the alleged assault and kidnapping on Christmas Day but didn't call police because she feared McKinnis.
