CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Officers from the Charleston Police Department arrested and charged a Charleston man for allegedly assaulting and kidnapping his girlfriend Wednesday.

According to the incident report, officers responded to the Jasper Apartments on Broad Street shortly after 11 p.m. regarding reports of an assault.
