Laurens City Police were dispatched to Ingle’s at 5:39 Tuesday afternoon on a report of a man assaulting his girlfriend. The victim told officers she is pregnant and had been experiencing complications, so EMS was called.

Other employees reportedly tried to get him to stop the assault and leave. He reportedly fled the store after 911 was called.

Later Tuesday evening the subject was reportedly located at his residence. Laurens Police arrested him and placed him in the county detention center.
