by Fulton Watch News Feed

MILTON, Ga. — Police arrested a 30-year-old Alpharetta man April 13 after he allegedly beat his girlfriend and held her captive for days in her apartment.

When police arrived at the scene, they found the victim, a 30-year-old Alpharetta woman, standing by mailboxes near her apartment, holding her toddler and crying with visible injuries, the incident report says.

The victim told police her boyfriend had taken her phone from her so she could not dial 911 and that he would block the door to prevent her from leaving the apartment, while he continued to beat her and accused her of cheating.

Police took the suspect into custody, who was still in the victim’s apartment with his 6-year-old son.

The victim said the suspect punched and kicked her about the face, arms, and legs multiple times, bit her arms, forcibly held her down by her arms, and threw her cell phone across the room striking her in the nose, according to the report.

The suspect’s son also told an officer the pair fight all the time, the report says.

Police charged the suspect with false imprisonment, two counts of battery, cruelty to children in the third degree and obstruction of 911 communication. The suspect was transported to the North Fulton County Jail in Alpharetta.
