Thomasville Police are looking for two men who attempted to rob a store, scaring customers and clerks.
A 23-year-old man sits in the Bibb County Jail tonight after deputies say he raped, beat and tortured his 19-year-old girlfriend over six days.
The 19 year old still has constant reminders of what she went through for six whole days. "He bit me," said Kayla Phillips. "He just kept hitting me in my head and you know kicking me and all that. He stuck stuff inside of me that shouldn't have been inside of me. you know, he raped me," said Phillips.
Phillips had been living with her boyfriend, 23-year old Justin Wilson, in Bibb County for three months.
On May 23rd, Phillips said Wilson accused her of cheating and began the beatings.
"I started walking down the driveway and he body slammed me and you know was dragging me and hitting me," said Phillips.
In those six days, Phillips said Wilson would hit her in the stomach, shoot dope into her arm, kick her, and at one point, he reportedly even hit her in the head with a chainsaw.
All while his grandmother and father were living in the same house. "His grandmother did try to help me once. He slapped his grandmother in the face and knocked her down," said Phillips.
Phillips said when Wilson's father noticed his son beating her, he would tell him to stop but no one ever called 9-1-1.
Bibb County Sheriff's Investigator Jody Wade said this is one of the worst cases he's ever seen. "She was beaten from the bottom of her feet to the top of her head literally. She had more injuries than anyone I have seen in the past 20 years," said Wade.
"I thought he was going to kill me," said Phillips.
On the 6th day, Phillips decided to take a chance while Wilson wasn't home. "I took off running to the next door neighbors and they took me to my sister-in-laws house and I got to the hospital by an ambulance," said Phillips.
Almost two weeks later, Wilson was arrested and placed in the Bibb County jail.
The thought of those days continues to haunt Phillips. "That's all I can do is think about it," she said.
Phillips has another struggle. She asys she's 7-weeks pregnant with Wilson's child.
Justin Wilson has been charged with 15 counts of domestic violence and is being held on a $400,000 bond.
