Maryland man held without bond after allegedly beating up ex-girlfriend in West End

(Updated 5/9/22) A 38-year-old Maryland man is being held without bond after a violent argument against his ex-girlfriend in her West End apartment on November 2.

The incident occurred at around 12:30 p.m. in the 5400 block of Bradford Court. The victim told police that she was driving home and talking with the suspect on Facetime, but that he was already waiting for her in the parking lot to meet in person. They met and went inside the apartment, where the victim allegedly told the suspect that she was starting a romantic relationship with someone else, according to a search warrant affidavit.

“At this point, (the suspect) begins to hit her in the back of the head and (the victim) falls to the ground,” according to the search warrant.

The victim told police that the suspect punched her in the face, arms, side and stomach, and then sexually assaulted her. Then, the suspect allegedly pulled out a container with three knives, grabbed the victim by the back of her neck and pointed a knife at her chest.

The victim reported to police that there was a knife on the ground at the time, and the suspect allegedly told her, “Pick up the knife and defend yourself. It’s either gonna be you or me.”

The victim told police that she was able to talk the suspect down, that he began to cry and that she was able to call a cousin on her phone. During the phone call, the suspect allegedly grabbed the phone and told the cousin that the victim fell and hit her head. He then left the apartment.

The suspect was arrested the next day and charged with malicious wounding, abduction with intent to defile, object sexual penetration and aggravated sexual battery.
