LEBANON, Va. (WJHL)- A Southwest Virginia man is being held without bond after police say he barricaded himself inside an apartment Tuesday night. 

Detective Chris Kiser with Lebanon, Virginia Police Department said they responded to the Fox Meadows Apartment Complex on Tuesday evening where a female victim told officers her boyfriend tried to kill her.

The suspect, identified by authorities as Harrial Eugene Stacy, Jr., barricaded himself inside the apartment.
