STIRLING CITY, Calif. - According to the Butte County Sheriff's Office, a man was arrested for two felonies Saturday morning after a woman escaped from his residence after being handcuffed and battered.

The incident was first reported to authorities at 8:17 a.m. on Saturday.

The victim told deputies she had gone to the home of the man she had previously dated late on Friday night. She said she was battered by the suspect, who hand handcuffed her and put a ball gag in her mouth.

She escaped when the man fell asleep and went to a neighbor's home on Manzanita Street for help.

Deputies said she appeared confused and had suffered battery and various injuries. She was taken to a local hospital and was later released.

Investigators located their suspect, 34- year-old Jacob Britton, at the home where the incident occurred.

Britton was arrested for domestic violence and false imprisonment, which are both felonies. Britton was then taken to the Butte County Jail for booking.

We won't be as hot today, but temperatures will still end up above average this afternoon. The threat of thunderstorms arrives in the Sierra later today, and that will bring elevated fire danger concerns to that region. Hotter temperatures return for your weekend.
