Randy Kimble, 44, of the 1100 block Farwell St., was charged with felonious assault.

Kimble’s girlfriend was at his Farwell Street home Monday morning when she told him she was leaving and he became upset, according to a Sandusky police report.

Kimble allegedly accused the woman of wanting to be with someone else. The woman told police she stayed to avoid a confrontation, but Kimble soon made his roommate leave and began his attack, which would last most of the morning, the report said.

During that time, Kimble allegedly hit the woman repeatedly and kicked her stomach. At one point, he grabbed her by the hair and dragged her to the backyard, where he threw her to the ground, the report said.

Throughout the attack, he yelled at his girlfriend about wanting to be with someone else, the report said.

Afraid to leave, the woman stayed and endured the assault, the report said.

Not until 7 p.m. Tuesday did police learn of Kimble’s alleged actions. The woman had called her daughter to tell her she was in severe pain. Not knowing if her mother would refuse a ride to the hospital, the daughter instead alerted police.

When officers arrived at the woman’s Fourth Street home, she was covered in bruises, the report said. Her eyes were black and blue and swollen, her stomach in extreme pain, her arms, legs, chest, stomach, and back bruised, and she even experienced slight bleeding.

The woman’s daughter took her to Firelands Regional Medical Center, where a doctor said she’d require follow-up care from her physician.

When officers went to Kimble’s workplace to arrest him, he denied touching her, the report said.

On his way to the Erie County jail, Kimble said he never hit her, the report said. He remains in jail on $20,000 bond.
