AUBURN — A Turner man was charged Wednesday with kidnapping and sexually assaulting a woman over a two-day period in January.

On the morning of Jan. 15, Troy Weston, 26, of 479 East Hebron Road forced a woman into her car, which he commandeered, police said in an affidavit filed in court records.

The woman told police that Weston held her in the car against her will, driving from Lewiston to Turner and parking for long periods. The woman, who knew Weston, told police that he threatened to harm and kill her if she tried to escape. He raped her repeatedly, cut her arm with a shaving razor and kneed her in the face, bloodying her nose, according to an affidavit written by Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Jon Guay.

The woman finally escaped early on the morning of Jan. 16 when Weston became drowsy from drugs he took.

Weston was charged with kidnapping and gross sexual assault, Class A crimes, each punishable by up to 30 years in prison. He also was charged with aggravated assault, a Class B crime, punishable by up to 10 years in prison. He also was charged with three misdemeanors: domestic violence assault, domestic violence criminal threatening and violation of condition of release.

He was held on $50,000 cash bail and ordered not to have any contact with the woman if released.
