MANKATO — A man charged with kidnapping and assault for allegedly holding a woman against her will in a Mankato apartment was arrested in Rochester this morning.

After receiving a tip, Rochester police arrested Joshua Jay Ratcliff, 22, of Amboy at a residence there. He was taken to the Olmsted County Jail to await transport back to Mankato, a Mankato Police Department report said.

A warrant was issued for Ratcliff’s arrest after a woman reported he had strangled and assaulted her, kept her from calling 911 and held her against her will Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The woman was treated at the hospital for injuries, then released, the report said.
