A North Georgia man is facing aggravated assault and kidnapping charges, after he reportedly trapped his girlfriend in a motel room and beat her, for two days.
Police responded to the Cascades Motel in East Ridge, after a woman showed up at Parkridge Medical Center with extensive injuries to her entire body. The woman said she was with her boyfriend, James Hartley when he told her he was the devil, and began punching her in the face. Hartley made a number of threats toward the woman and beat her with a broom handle. She was able to escape once he fell asleep. When police responded to the motel, the door to their room was already open, and there were drugs present. Hartley is facing multiple charges.
