NASHUA – A Nashua man who allegedly kept a girlfriend in her apartment for five hours while threatening to stab her and burn her with oil is facing a number of charges related to domestic violence, Nashua police said.

Johnathan Ray Gerald, 30, was arrested Thursday after police responded to a report of ongoing violence.

Police said that after uniformed officers couldn’t get a response, they forced their way into the apartment.

Police alleged that Gerald “had restrained the victim within her apartment for nearly five hours,” during which time he “assaulted her by grabbing her, throwing her around and choking her repeatedly.”

He also threatened to stab her with a knife and scissors, police allege, and threatened to “pour a pot of hot oil on her.”

The woman received cuts and bruises, but no injuries that were life-
threatening.

Gerald faces six counts of second-degree assault, three counts of criminal threatening and a count of criminal restraint, all Class B felonies punishable by up to seven years in prison, as well as charges of simple assault and criminal mischief, which are misdemeanors.

Arraignment was scheduled in Nashua district court on Friday.
