Pierre man arrested on assault, kidnapping charges
PIERRE (AP) — A Pierre man is accused of assaulting and kidnapping his girlfriend and her young daughter.
KCCR radio reports that 32-year-old Ervin Anderson is charged with two counts of assault and one count of second-degree kidnapping. He is being held in the Hughes County jail.
Authorities say police were called to a local motel shortly after 3 a.m. after neighbors heard screaming from a room. Police say Addison had barricaded the door so his 25-year-old girlfriend a 6-year-old daughter could not leave.
Court documents do not list an attorney for Addison.
