A woman is recovering from injuries she suffered after a violent attack Friday morning.
Wichita Police say it began around 7:30 a.m. in the 2500 block of N. Estelle. Sgt. Bruce Watts says the father of the woman's child came to her door and grabbed her hard by her hair.
She tells police she was briefly knocked unconscious after he body slammed her. He then put her in his car and drove to a fishing spot.
The suspect held her head under the water and threatened to kill her. Sgt. Watts says the 27-year-old woman convinced the suspect to take her to the hospital.
Police were contacted after they arrived at Wesley Medical Center. The 23-year-old suspect was arrested and charged with aggravated battery.
