A Bethany man is incarcerated on charges of assault and stalking.
Thirty-one year old Ronald Smith is alleged to have stuck a female on several separate occasions, at times to the point where she said she feared she would lose consciousness.
A probable cause statement filed with the court says Smith threatened harm to the victim if she reported the assaults to law enforcement.
Smith is facing three felony counts of assault of a special victim and stalking. His bond is set at $100,000 cash only.
