— A Rock Hill man is accused of assaulting his girlfriend during a disturbance that was so loud that police dispatch received several calls.

Stanford Bernard White, 28, is charged with criminal domestic violence and trespassing, according to Rock Hill Police report.

Police arrived at Market Place Apartments in Rock Hill at about 7 a.m. Saturday and found paper and documents littering the ground in front of the apartment.

The 24-year-old woman who answered the door had a large knot on her forehead and swelling cheek and eye. When police asked if something was going on, the woman "broke down crying" and said her boyfriend assaulted her, the report states.

The victim told police she was in bed with her daughter when White came in drunk and punched her. She moved to another room, and White followed her and continued to punch her, according to the report.

They ended up outside, where White allegedly pushed her down, dragged her through the mud and choked her.

Police say White only quit choking the woman because others around were yelling at him to stop.

After the attack, White took off toward Flint Hill Street. Neighbors gave police a description of White, and he was later located at the corner of Flint Hill and Lige streets.
