A Texas man is accused of kidnapping and torturing a woman for five days after meeting her on the popular dating app Bumble.

Zachary Kent Mills is 21 years old.
He mediately began physically assaulting her and would not let her leave the residence,” the affidavit reads. “The complainant advised that when he assaulted her, he would hit her with a closed fist.” The woman allegedly told police that Mills bit her on the neck and face and hit her repeatedly with a screwdriver. While she was held captive for five days, she was allegedly denied food and water, according to the affidavit.
She was able to escape when Mills left her apartment to visit her father. “At that point, the complainant picked up her clothing, ran out the door, and contacted the first people she contacted and informed them of what had occurred,” the affidavit reads.
Authorities said the alleged victim suffered severe bruising to both eyes, bite marks and cuts to both her throat and nose, and severe bruising to her body. Mills was released on $50,000 bail. His attorney, Chris Denuna, says he pleaded not guilty.
“Obviously these are very egregious accusations,” he tells PEOPLE. “I have yet to receive any discovery or evidence from the district attorney’s office. Until then, once we receive that discovery, we will have a better idea of which direction this case is headed. In the meantime, as the constitution and due process, he is presumed innocent.
Denuna says Mills has no criminal record. Mills was placed on house arrest and ordered to wear a GPS ankle monitor. He is also ordered to stay away from the alleged victim. His next hearing date is scheduled for March 3.
