TAYLORSVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Spencer County law enforcement says 37-year-old Leslie Tindle lured her boyfriend to a home to assault him over missing drug money.

Detectives say Tindle lured him to a trailer near her home on Sept. 27. The arrest affidavit says a third person hid behind a door while the victim came to the home, then struck him as he entered.

Tindle is accused of watching while her boyfriend was assaulted. According to police she forced the victim to strip naked saying he could not wear “her clothes.”

The victim was eventually found beaten and naked on Bloomfield road with his hands zip-tied behind his back.

Police say Tindle accused her boyfriend of being involved with a person who swindled her out of $600 that was supposed to buy an ounce of meth.

Police eventually arrested Leslie Tindle at a home on Burns lane, six miles from where the assault happened, Wednesday Oct 21.

Tindle is charged with kidnapping, robbery, and assault.
