BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - A Bainbridge woman is recovering after investigators said her ex-boyfriend used a car to pin her against the side of her home.
Investigators removed crime scene tape that surrounded a home at 410 Miller Avenue since Sunday night.
Bainbridge Public Safety Investigator Chris Jordan said, “The first officer on scene arrived and located a Hispanic female lying on the ground in the back of the residence.”
Jennifer Abrigo told officers her ex boyfriend Ismal Martinez, 24, was trying to take items out of her car that night.
When she confronted him, Abrigo told officer they got into a fight, which escalated quickly.
“He got into the car, and ran over her foot, and pinned her against the house. He possibly broke her foot and her leg,” said Jordan.
Abrigo told officers she was pinned up against a tin wall, until Martinez drove off.
Officers located and arrested Martinez minutes later about five miles down the road.
Martinez is charged with aggravated assault and may face other charges, since the incident took place in front of children.
“You've got a 4,000 to 6,000 pound weapon and you never know the damage it can cause. It could have been a fatality. She's a very lucky woman,” said Jordan.
Abrigo has been released from the hospital.
