A woman from Louisiana is in jail for holding a woman against her will and repeatedly assaulting her in Watford City.

Prosecutors charged 18-year-old Nytera Staten with Felonious Restraint and Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon.

Watford City police say the victim said Staten dragged her into her home by her hair, repeatedly assaulted her with a board that had nails in it, and then cut her hand with a kitchen knife.

The two lived together at the residence a couple of months prior to the incident, but the victim said Staten came back to try to get cash from her.

Staten has a preliminary hearing on December 5th.
