A Chattanooga man is behind bars on a list of assault charges.

Chattanooga Police responded to an aggravated domestic assault at the Walgreen's parking lot on Highway 153, early Friday morning. Upon arrival, a female victim told police she had been held captive and tortured by her boyfriend, James Durand Favors III, 25, at his home on Gadd Rd.
