A woman visited a dentist's office with visible injuries from an alleged domestic violence attack. But, the office called the police and now the attacker has been arrested, according to a report.
Neal allegedly minimized the victim’s injuries, telling police he “did not break any bones” or “leave any permanent scars,” according to the arrest affidavit obtained by Coral Springs Talk.
Police learned about the crime after Neal dropped the woman off at the dentist on Dec. 22, Coral Springs Talk reported.
Officers found the victim inside the office crying. She told the dental team of the attack the night before, according to Coral Springs Talk.
Neal got angry after he looked through her phone and found text messages from other men, Coral Springs Talk reported.
Neal allegedly punched the victim in her mouth, eye and face, causing various injuries, then threw her to the ground and tossed her, according to Coral Springs Talk.
He also put her in a chokehold, during which she could not breathe, causing injuries to her neck, Coral Springs Talk reported.
Police arrested Neal, who was still waiting in the car outside the dentist’s office. Officers also gave the victim information about how to get a restraining order, according to Coral Springs Talk.
Neal was released from the Broward County jail on a $2,000 bond, according to Coral Springs Talk.
