A 19-year-old Kansas University student was charged Thursday in Douglas County District Court with three counts of battery and one count each of criminal damage and criminal restraint.

Kang allegedly damaged property and prevented the victim from leaving home. The victim also sustained nonlife-threatening injuries during the incident.

Kang was originally arrested on suspicion of kidnapping. The most serious charge, aggravated battery, carries a maximum penalty of 34 months in prison.

Bond was set at $7,000.
