JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) — Jamestown police say a woman was held against her will at an address on the east side of the city.

Swanson was charged with strangulation, unlawful imprisonment, obstructing governmental administration, aggravated family offense and harassment. He was taken to the city jail to await arraignment.
