WEST MAHANOY TWP., Pa. -

Authorities have arrested a man wanted in the brutal assault on a woman in Schuylkill County.

State police took Christopher Benjamin into custody in West Mahanoy Township on Wednesday.

Benjamin, 34, repeatedly beat a 31-year-old woman and threatened her life last month in a wooded area of the township, where she was left with a 4-year-old child for two days, according to police.

The woman was able to make it to a nearby road and get help.

Authorities said the woman's injuries were serious, but they did not comment on the child's condition.
