    A suspect is in custody after police in New York say a woman was found chained in a basement.

    Police in Niagara Falls said that Michael Ciskiewic was arrested Monday on charges of kidnapping, burglary, rape, assault and menacing with a weapon after he was found hiding in a nearby industrial area, according to WIVB. Information on his lawyer wasn't immediately available.

    Police had been searching for the suspect after receiving a call about an assault early Sunday morning. They found a broken window and blood but no one was at that home.

    The woman's family was unable to make contact with her and police returned with a bloodhound. The dog tracked her to another home nearby where she was rescued. The woman was treated at a hospital and released.
