Radcliff police said a warrant was issued for 31 year-old Michael Metcalf Jr. Saturday morning for holding a woman in his apartment from April 7 to April 13. Metcall was arrested at his Radcliff apartment 45 minutes later. Over the course of those seven days, the woman told police he restrained her with handcuffs, repeatedly assaulted her with a walking cane and burned her with cigarettes.
The woman also told police she had sex with Metcalf out of fear of being harmed.
