An 18-year-old man was arrested on early Monday morning after he allegedly attacked his girlfriend when she requested they go spend time with their son.
Officer Baylor Pittinger was called to a domestic dispute at around 8:30pm on Sunday evening, according to the police affidavit. Upon arriving, he spoke with the victim, who said her boyfriend, 18-year-old Robert Taylor assaulted her after an argument about spending time with their son.
According to the affidavit, the victim said that she and Taylor were at their house with friends, and that she got angry at him because he stated he was not going to spend time with her and their son, but rather hang out with friends.
Taylor left the residence and returned about thirty minutes later, when they began to argue with one another. According to the police report, Taylor grabbed her wallet and threw it out the front door and into the neighbor’s yard, and she in turn grabbed a bag of his miscellaneous property and threw it into the neighbor’s yard.
The victim stated Taylor shoved her onto the couch, causing a minor abrasion to her right elbow, and when she tried to get up, he allegedly punched in the face, causing her nose to bleed. Officer Pittinger observed dried blood around the edge of her nose, and that it appeared to be slightly swollen.
The victim stated she “begged him to stop” as Taylor began to throw items around the house. According to police, the victim said Taylor picked up an Xbox video game console and was going to break the T.V. with it, and when she tried to stop him, he threw it at her, hitting her in the ribs. Pittinger said she did not appear to have any visible injuries to her rib area.
According to the report, Taylor immediately called his mother to pick him up and he left the scene prior to the police arriving. They were unable to locate him at the time, but he was found and arrested at about 2:45am on Monday morning.
According to the report, Taylor has no other criminal history. He was booked under charges of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
