A good Samaritan assisted a beaten and bleeding woman who jumped from a moving car in west Phoenix.
Phoenix police report that in the early morning of October 26, a man, identified as 28-year-old Terrance Lee King, allegedly punched his girlfriend while they were driving.
He then reportedly parked in an alleyway where he removed her from the car and severely beat her with a broomstick that he found in the alley.
After throwing her back into the car, he continued to drive, ordering her to remove her clothes.
The victim would later tell police that she believed King, "was taking her to the desert to kill her."
As the stoplight near 75th Avenue and McDowell Road turned green, the woman jumped from the car, and suffered road rash.
Police say a passerby saw the woman naked, bleeding and stumbling on the side of the road, and assisted her. The good Samaritan gave her a blanket and some clothing and stayed with her until police arrived.
King, who has an extensive criminal record, was located and arrested by police on November 1 and has been charged with aggravated assault.
