Police arrested a man who officers accused of forcing his way into a woman's home and using a stun gun on her.

Aubrey Wayne Martin sits behind bars at the Laurel County Detention Center. London Police arrested Martin on Saturday morning after responding to a call of a woman screaming in an apartment on Moore Street. When officers knocked on the apartment door, they say the woman came running out toward them with Martin chasing her.

Investigators learned Martin used to live in the apartment complex, but had been told by management to stay off the property. Police say Martin was "infatuated" with Natasha Nicholson which an arrest citation lists her as his girlfriend. The victim told investigators Martin had a stun gun attached to a flashlight and that he attacked her with it several times after disabling the apartment's alarm system.

Martin, however, talked with WKYT's Tanner Hesterberg from jail. He said that he is innocent.

"I just want to go home. I've done nothing wrong," Martin said. "I don't ever want to see her again or speak to her again. If that's what she wants, that's fine with me. I just want to go home. This isn't right. It's wrong.

Natasha Nicholson is still shaken up but also spoke to WKYT about the altercation. She says she couldn't believe how bad Martin allegedly treated her.

"No one needs to be treated that way. You don't treat an animal that way," says Nicholson.

When London Police knocked on the door, Nicholson ran out, and officers say Martin chased behind her.

Martin says that Nicholson came after him when he confronted her about another man.

"I'm an innocent man. I don't know how it looks but I am. I didn't do anything but go to make love to my girlfriend," says Martin.

Martin faces several charges, related to assault, burglary, and unlawful imprisonment. Martin says he plans to plead not guilty during his arraignment on Wednesday morning in Laurel County District Court.
