Chelan County sheriff's deputies arrested Calisle Simpson Dean, 62, at this rural Leavenworth cabin in a domestic violence investigation Friday.

WENATCHEE — A Seattle man faces possible charges of kidnapping and assault after allegedly tying up and beating his partner at a cabin outside Leavenworth.

Chelan County sheriff’s deputies arrested Calisle Simpson Dean, 62, on Friday afternoon at his vacation cabin on a Forest Service road off Icicle Road. His girlfriend, a 47-year-old British Columbia woman, was treated for a fractured rib and other injuries at Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth.

The woman told investigators she and Dean were staying at his cabin and began to argue about 12:30 a.m. Friday. He allegedly attacked her, tied her hands with painters tape, and kicked and punched her repeatedly. He also allegedly used a cloth apron to restrain her, deputies said.

The victim said the ordeal went on for about three and a half hours, until Dean released her and she was able to drive to the Leavenworth hospital, where she arrived about 5:30 a.m. Deputies said when interviewed at the hospital, she had blue painter’s masking tape on one wrist and her left eye was swollen.

Deputies arrested Dean at the cabin when they arrived to serve a search warrant about 3:30 p.m. Dean was held in jail over the weekend, and scheduled to make his first appearance today in Chelan County Superior Court.
