DURANGO, COLORADO (KRQE) – A Durango man has been arrested accused of holding a woman hostage for days, repeatedly beating her.

La Plata County sheriff’s deputies said they were called out to a home early Christmas Eve. That’s when they found a woman barely conscious.

Deputies said she told them 46-year-old Edward Venteroso held her against her will and hit her with a cast iron frying pan.

They said Venteroso broke her phone so she couldn’t call for help and assaulted her over the next two days.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Venteroso is now being held on felony charges.
