A Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputy recently visited a residence on B. Wilson Rd. to listen to complaints by a woman who said her boyfriend regularly assaults her.

The deputy noticed numerous injuries on the woman’s body, including scrapes and bruises. The woman also believes she has a broken rib because of her trouble breathing and busted eardrums.

Some of the abuse she cataloged included the boyfriend slamming her head against a wall and pushing her off a tall porch. She said he also shoots a pellet gun towards her and that some of the abuse is verbal.

The woman stayed the night at her mother’s residence and was told to call 911 if the boyfriend came.
