Troy Brisport, of Toledo, is charged with kidnapping and felonious assault. Bail was set Tuesday at $400,000.

Police say he picked up the woman Wednesday night in Detroit and drove her to his home, about 55 miles away.

She told police when she fell asleep, Brisport handcuffed her wrists and ankles, gagged her, undressed her and put her in an adult diaper.

Court documents state Brisport tried several times to suffocate the woman using a pillow and blanket.

She told police she escaped Saturday after he fell asleep.

Toledo police Capt. Ray Carroll says it appears there was no sexual assault.
