Police have now arrested and charged a Springfield, Ohio father for assaulting the woman said to be the mother of his two children. Witnesses reported seeing the man drag the woman outside down a flight of stairs at an apartment complex leasing office. This assault took place while the woman was holding the couple’s 11 month old baby.
Authorities arrested the man, 20 year old Kayvon Brown, Tuesday. The Clark County Prosecutors Office released a formal indictment. Brown has been charged with counts of child endangerment, abduction, domestic violence, and obstructing official business.
This assault escalated after a verbal altercation between Brown and the victim. A 911 dispatcher received a call from an employee in the Ronez Manor Apartment Office. Here is a log of the actual police call.
Dispatcher: “Hello 911?”
Caller: “Oh my God, Help Help!”
Dispatcher:”What’s going on?”
Caller: “Oh he’s beating her, the baby’s in her hand, the baby’s getting hurt, hurry up!”
Dispatcher: “What’s the address ma’am?”
Caller: “Ronez Manor, 1948 Wilkes Drive”
The crazy, yet fortunate, detail of this entire event is that it was all caught on camera. A surveillance video from the apartment complex depicts Brown slapping the victim, throwing her to the ground, kicking her, all while holding their child and knocking the other child, a 23 month old, down. He then proceeded to pull the woman by her ankles, and forcefully dragging her outside of the apartment office and down the stairs.
Here is what Detective James Byron with Springfield Police Department had to say about the incident:
“Pretty intense situation, pretty bad domestic situation at an apartment complex here in the city, you’ve asked if we’ve seen it before, we have but this was pretty intense.”
Lucky for the victim, police were able to use the surveillance video to obtain his license plate number and later make an arrest. “It’s actually not that uncommon, sadly it happens quite frequently that children are in the home witnessing violence it’s not uncommon for us to see them being in the same room when the adult is being assaulted,” said Clark County Prosecutor Amy Smith.
Police want this incident to help other women going through any violence to speak up, because their life may be in danger.
“If they don’t feel safe, they should make themselves safe either by leaving, contacting family members, they can contact project woman and of course they can contact the police,” said Detective Byron.
