A man is behind bars two days after allegedly tying up a woman using duct tape, sticking a sock in her mouth and threatening to cut off her toes if she made a sound, authorities said.
Jeremy Miguel Anderson, 31, of Jonesboro, was arrested by deputies in DeKalb County on Tuesday, a day after he was named the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office’s most wanted suspect.
Clayton County police began the investigation into the incident at Anderson’s house in the 1400 block of Iron Gate Boulevard on Sunday, AJC.com previously reported. The victim was visiting him when an argument allegedly prompted the attack.
After tying her up, Anderson hit the woman several times and left bruises on her neck, the sheriff’s office said. He also allegedly cut her with a knife on her shoulder, causing her to bleed. The woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was treated at a hospital, police said.
Anderson was booked into the Clayton County jail on charges of aggravated assault, aggravated battery, terroristic threats and false imprisonment, jail records show.
