The Elizabethtown Police Department made an arrest on Tuesday, taking a man into custody after he had assaulted his girlfriend. According to arrest citations, the victim called and told police that she had been at the suspect, Travis England’s, house for four days. In an altercation where Travis was attempting to take her keys, the victim was thrown against the wall and on the floor, and had items thrown at her, causing bruising and swelling to her face and body. In addition, England allegedly chambered a bullet and pointed a handgun at the victim, saying that he was going to kill her, then hit her in the back of the head with the weapon. Upon a search, two glass pipes with suspected methamphetamine residue, the handgun, and a pill bottle with suspected marijuana seeds were found.
England faces two separate assault counts, as well as wanton endangerment and drug possession. He was lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center.
