DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit police say a woman's bravery and "unwavering desire to survive" helped her fend off a rapist and torturer by stabbing him in the eye and "ending his reign of terror."
Police say they believe 23-year-old ex-con Roderick Neely committed two similar attacks last year.
The judge who arraigned him Saturday ordered Neely be held without bond on charges of torture, kidnapping, attempted rape and possessing a firearm as a felon.
Prosecutor's spokeswoman Maria Miller says he didn't have a lawyer Sunday.
The 43-year-old woman says the gun-wielding man forced her into a car as she walked near a gas station Wednesday. She says he beat her, pulled off her clothes and put a blowtorch to her feet.
She says he fled after she jabbed a screwdriver in his eye.
