A woman ran directly to a Scottsdale police station after allegedly being beaten by her boyfriend, according to Scottsdale police. 

Scottsdale police report that on November 29, a woman ran to a police station near 75th Street and Indian School Road screaming, "Help me! help me!" after a series of alleged attacks by her boyfriend. 

Inside the station, the woman told police about extremely violent attacks she suffered at the hands of her boyfriend, 30-year-old Jeremy Joseph Swabrick. 

She allegedly told police Swabrick picked her up by her hair, saying "she could feel the hair being pulled out of her head." 

The woman also told police Swabrick said she didn't deserve the clothes she was wearing and forced to remove them as he "spat on her naked body." 

Swabrick allegedly sexually assaulted, choked and punched the woman while she was cleaning up in the shower. 

Later that night, Swabrick bit her in the buttocks, creating an open wound. 

When the woman saw a chance to run away, she escaped and ran down an alley to the nearby police station. Police later arrested Swabrick. 

Upon his arrest, Swabrick reportedly told officers, "I'm going to jail for a long time, huh?" 

He has been charged with multiple counts of assault and sexual assault.
