A man tied a woman up earlier this month, with the woman escaping a couple of days later.

The victim told deputies that 33-year-old Steven Edwards reportedly hit her in the head multiple times following an argument on Friday, June 7, and then hog-tied her at a home on North Heritage Road. He allegedly put duct tape over her mouth.

The victim was able to get away on Sunday, June 9, and call 911 from a neighbor's house. Edwards had taken her phone, according to a Greene County Sheriff's report.

The victim reportedly had bruising on her head, arms and wrist with red marks visible on her right ankle.

Edwards ran into the woods before deputies arrived, according to the victim.

Edwards was arrested on Sunday and charged with aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping and robbery.
