Upon further investigation, the Sheriff's Office learned the victim had been severely assaulted and tortured for two days.
Attempts were reportedly made to get inside a home with no success. According to the Sheriff's Office, "Negotiations began and one resident came out with another held up inside stated to be armed and suicidal."
A SWAT team was deployed on the home, and after approximately five hours, authorities located the suspect, James Larson Jr., hiding in a false wall, the Sheriff's Office says. Larson was arrested, and he remains held on an unrelated probation violation warrant with no bond.
The victim was transported to a local hospital and is in critical condition, according to the Sheriff's Office.
The investigation remains ongoing, and the Sheriff's Office says the Clinton County Prosecutor's Office will file charges.
