SK man beaten up by ex-girlfriend, two men

Taken from an incident report by a Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputy:

One woman and two men allegedly worked together to beat a 49-year-old man with a club-like object around 5:45 p.m. July 18 in South Kitsap.

The victim saw a blue, mid-1980’s Chevorlet truck pull into his driveway and immediately identified one of its passengers, a 53-year-old woman, as his ex-girlfriend.

He couldn’t, however, identify two men with her, who appeared to be in their 20’s.

One of the male passengers, 6 foot 2 inch caucasian with a thin build and short, black hair got out of the truck and approached the victim.

He allegedly beat the victim with a yellow “handle,” like the handle for an axe, splitting maul or sledge hammer.

The victim went to the ground and tried to cover his head, but the suspect allegedly hit him “at least 10 times,” and the victim’s ex-girlfriend allegedly walked over and kicked him in the head, as he was laying on the ground.

During the attack, the suspects allegedly said that they were beating him in retaliation, because he had beaten up his ex-girlfriend.

The victim claims he never beat up his ex-girlfriend.

When a deputy later called his ex-girlfriend, the female suspect, she allegedly yelled at him, cried and said that the victim had tried to rape her.

The deputy asked her about the beating, but she allegedly said that she knew nothing about it.

She refused to meet with the deputy and said that she wouldn’t answer any more questions until she had spoken with a lawyer.

The deputy allegedly went to her apartment and found her talking on the phone.

The deputy told her that she was under arrest, and she allegedly said that she wasn’t going.

He handcuffed her right handtold her to put down the phone.

She allegedly continued talking on the phone and refused to allow him to handcuff her left hand.

He allegedly grabbed her left hand, but, as he started handcuff her, she allegedly pulled away.

The deputy shoved her against some junk and held her against it while he handcuffed her.

She allegedly screamed and fell to the deck.

Two men allegedly went out to the deck, through a sliding glass door, and told the deputy to go easy on the woman.

The woman allegedly wouldn’t get up, so the deputy hooked his forearm under her arm, raised her to her feet, trying to help her walk to his car.

The woman wasn’t complying, so the deputy radioed for backup.

A female deputy arrived at the scene and the two worked together to get the woman into the back of the female deputy’s patrol car.

She was booked into jail for fourth degree assault, third degree assault and resisting arrest.

Bail was initially set at $15,000.
