Not Tonight, Dear

Laurens Police were dispatched to an apartment on West Main at 10:28 last night regarding a possible domestic violence case. A woman alleged that her boyfriend had assaulted her by smacking her in the face with an open palm of his hand. Officers noted they did not observe any indication the woman had been struck in her face. The boyfriend reported that the woman was upset because he would not have sex with her. He told officers he had called his dad to come pick up the 27-year-old woman and take her to Simpsonville, where she lives with her parents. The girlfriend indicated she didn’t feel comfortable riding with the boyfriends’ Dad, and would go to work in Simpsonville in the morning. Officers then suggested the 37-year-old boyfriend go spend the night with his Dad. The young woman reportedly agreed not to destroy anything in her boyfriend’s home while he was not there last night.
