JOLIET TOWNSHIP — Will County sheriff’s police say a man attacked his girlfriend and threatened to hit her with a hammer during a fight Monday night at his residence.
Neighbors called police at 9:30 p.m. after a loud fight at 1412 Sehring St., where Jeremie Farris, 25, hit the 24-year-old woman in the head with an electric mixer and dragged her across a floor, sheriff’s police spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said.
“He tied her hands with the mixer cord and another cord from a clothes iron before he grabbed a hammer and threatened to strike her,” Hoffmeyer said.
Farris allegedly then began heating a pan of oil on the stove while the woman was restrained but began to untie her when officers arrived.
Farris was arrested on charges of aggravated unlawful restraint, domestic battery, aggravated assault and interfering with reporting domestic violence. Records show he was convicted of delivery of drugs in Arkansas in 2007.
