A Lincoln County man is in jail under a no-bond hold after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend.
The girlfriend, who works a third-shift job, got off work on the morning of June 18 and decided to get the tires on her boyfriend’s vehicle replaced for a Father’s Day gift.
When she arrived home to show the new tires to Jeremy Samuel Paris Sartin, 34, of Bess Chapel Church Road in Cherryville, a domestic dispute developed and the woman was assaulted, according to a press release from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies arrived on the scene to find the victim with a bruised, swollen left eye, bruising on her nose, dried blood on her nostrils and red marks on her chin, cheek and neck. She told officers she had been struck several times by Sartin with his hands and feet. The woman attempted to flee but Sartin grabbed her around the throat with both hands. Sartin left the scene with the couple’s child and the victim called 911.
Deputies transported the woman to the Lincoln County Magistrate’s Office so she could secure a domestic violence protection order. Lincoln County EMS evaluated the woman and transported her to Atrium Health – Lincoln for treatment of her injuries.
Sartin was arrested the same day on charges of first degree kidnapping, assault inflicting serious injury, assault by strangulation and assault on a female. He was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a no-bond hold.
