25-year-old Thomas Beatty was arrested Friday, and 27-year-old Chivon Leon arrested Saturday in a case where a man who used to live in Salina, moved to Hutchinson and was taken against his will. He was beaten, and was eventually able to get away and contacted Salina Police. The victim was taken to Salina Regional Health Center and treated for injuries and released.
Reno County Sheriff Randy Henderson tells the Hutch Post that investigators are still trying to piece together what happened but it appears the incident started in the city of Hutchinson and then moved out into the county, and eventually to Salina.
Salina Interim Police Chief Carson Mansfield said the case stems from a domestic issue.
