Officers say the severe assault left the victim with many bruises and abrasions and apparently involved a weapon.
Police say the male suspect was arrested at an apartment shortly after the attack.
The victim, who is expected to fully recover, was able to escape with the help of a friend and was brought to police headquarters.
Several charges are being recommended against the suspect including attempted murder, assault with a weapon and uttering threats.
The suspect's identity has not been revealed because of his age, but police say he is expected to undergo a psychiatric examination before a court appearance set for Friday.
