News sources report that a man was wanted on not just one but three arrest warrants for domestic abuse. While he has avoided capture since last May, police have finally caught up with the suspect, labeling him as a serial domestic violence offender. The 33-year-old, Q.P., will now have to answer to a litany of criminal charges that have been filed against him. Q.P. has been charged with second-degree unlawful restraint, third-degree strangulation, third-degree assault, second-degree burglary, and interference with an emergency phone call.
Most of these charges relate to an incident that happened last May. At that time, Q.P. threw his pregnant girlfriend to the ground. The girlfriend told police that when she tried to call authorities, her boyfriend ripped the phone from her hand and continued to abuse her. After a brief struggle, she said she was able to get away without her or her baby being harmed. Following that incident, he broke into her apartment and strangled her. She again tried to call police, but was unable to do so. After a third altercation, the girlfriend contacted authorities to report the abuse. She told police that she and her boyfriend had broken up. It was during this incident that Q.P. was placed under arrest and taken to a local jail.
