REVERE, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A Revere man is accused of kidnapping and assaulting another man for sending text messages to his wife.
The Suffolk County District Attorney's office says 25-year-old Anthony Weiner was arraigned Monday on charges that include kidnapping, assault to murder, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Weiner is accused of luring a 21-year-old Winthrop man to a location on Malden Street where he tied the man to a chair, beat him with a baseball bat, and threatened him.
The victim was eventually released and returned home before being transported to the hospital. His injuries are considered serious, but the district attorney's office says he is expected to survive.
Weiner was held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing on Wednesday.
