Rock Hill woman hospitalized after domestic violence assault

A Rock Hill woman was hospitalized after an alleged Tuesday night assault by her husband, who is being sought by Rock Hill Police.

The 29-year-old victim entered a neighbor’s home about 9 p.m. Tuesday covered in blood, yelling for help and saying her husband had beaten her, according to a Rock Hill Police report. Officers say the woman had blood on her face and shirt, and she was wrapped in a blanket from the waist down.

Officers went with the woman back to her home, where they saw a pair of ripped jeans near the front door and blood pools throughout the home, the report states. The victim told officers she and her husband had been drinking and got into an argument, during which he threw her onto the bed and began punching her in the face.

The victim said her husband grabbed her when she tried to run away, threw her onto the living room floor and ripped her jeans as she tried to exit the home, according to the police report. She had several cuts and a large gash on her face, swelling in her face and she complained of pain in her head.

She was taken to the Piedmont Medical Center emergency room for treatment.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for the husband, charging him with criminal domestic violence.
