Jacob Taylor, 24, Richmond, was arrested on Oct. 1 by Richmond police on a warrant which charged him with second-degree domestic violence assault, second-degree criminal mischief, first-degree stalking, and third-degree terroristic threatening.
According to a warrant, in Nov. 2020, an officer responded to Sun Tan City for two different calls regarding an assault that took place. The officer arrived on the scene and found the victim with marks and bruises on her face and blood pouring out of her mouth. She clearly had multiple teeth missing and had blood on her hands, stomach, and the ground all around her from where she was spitting blood out of her mouth.
The warrant states, the victim had been at Sun Tan City and came out and sat in her vehicle, which was parked in front of T-Mobile. She was on her phone getting ready to call a friend when she felt someone tap her on her shoulder. She said she knew it was Taylor sitting behind her before she even turned around. The two then engaged in a verbal argument, and the victim exited the vehicle because she was scared. She said she called Taylor a cab to take him home because she was too afraid to give him a ride.
The warrant states, the victim said while she drives, he will grab the steering wheel and force her to drive where he wants her to go. During the altercation, Taylor took her phone and threw it across the parking lot, shattering the screen. Taylor then got into a car driven by another male. The victim told police she banged on the vehicle window and told Taylor he was going to jail for breaking her phone. Taylor then exited the vehicle and proceeded to punch the victim in the face multiple times. During the altercation, the victim also said Taylor threatened to kill her. He then left the scene.
The warrant states, the victim told police she didn't know where Taylor might go. She said they had broken up a few weeks prior, and he continued to call her from various numbers. She said she was unsure how he knew she was at Sun Tan City or when or how he got into her car.
