PERRY TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A Euclid man was charged with felonious assault and kidnapping after police said he beat his ex-girlfriend so badly that she needed to be flown to a hospital.
Matthew Alan Brown, 44, was charged with felonious assault and kidnapping after police responded to the victim's Perry Township home Saturday.
Brown initially told police the woman fell in the shower and "bruises easily," police said, but the woman told them that she had been injured while fighting with Brown.
More charges are possible, police note. This investigation is ongoing.
