A city detective arrested a 20th Street woman Tuesday night after a woman said she beat her on April 5 and held her hostage until April 7.

Detective Patty McCune arrested Tiffany Taczak, 28, at 9:30 p.m. at the Public Safety Building after she was spotted in the city and taken into custody.

Taczak was charged with felony assault and unlawful imprisonment.

The victim's husband located her and took her to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, said McCune.

The victim had clumps of hair pulled out of her head, severe bruising to her eyes and face and scratches over most of her body, said McCune. She was treated last Thursday and released.

Taczak is scheduled to be arraigned in City Court today. No bail has been set because of the felony charge, said McCune.
