Eric Craig Sowers, 40, of the 9800 block of Fairmont Ave, is charged with abduction, two counts of domestic assault and battery and destruction of property. 

A 38-year-old woman reported that she and Sowers were arguing on Tuesday when he allegedly assaulted her and forced her into an upstairs room. Police said that Sowers allegedly held the woman there for about an hour, until she was able to dial 911.
