BUTLER, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A western Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges that he attacked his live-in girlfriend and duct-taped her arms so she couldn't leave their home after an argument.

Gary Tichansky, of Butler Township, was arraigned early Tuesday on charges including aggravated assault and unlawful restraint.

Tichansky, 29, faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 14 and remained in the Butler County Jail after he could not post $100,000 bail.

Police in Butler Township said the incident happened Monday.

Officers responding to a report of a domestic dispute found the 37-year-old woman in a bedroom with facial injuries. She also told police her fingers hurt because she had been bound so tightly with tape.
