NBC CONNECTICUT – A Massachusetts man was arrested in Vernon on Friday, accused of assaulting his pregnant girlfriend and attacking her with scissors.
Vernon police responded to a domestic disturbance on Park West Drive at 11:18 p.m. on Friday.
Police said Lance Redd, 26, of Worcester, Massachusetts, had been accused of punching and kicking his pregnant girlfriend and attacking her with a pair of scissors.
When officers responded, Redd jumped from a second-floor window to escape police, police said.
A short time later, a K-9 team found Redd hiding in thick brush near the apartment.
He was taken into custody, treated at Rockville General Hospital for a broken toe he suffered when he jumped, and was brought back to the Vernon Police Department, where he was booked and processed.
