Boyfriend attacked his girl with a clay pot, smashing it against her head; He is at large

(Riverton, Wyo.) – Police are looking for a 27-year-old man after he was allegedly involved in a violent domestic abuse attack after striking his 33-year-old girlfriend in the head with a clay plant pot filled with dirt, smashing it. The report came into police at 8:32 p.m. Saturday from the 800 block of Yvonne Drive by the victim. According to a police report, the victim said she was coming home and upon arriving at her residence, she found broken flower pots on the sidewalk and found that her house was in total disarray. When police arrived, the woman was found at the front door, crying.

According to the RPD report, the victim said she found the words “good by” written in dirt on the floor. Her furniture was moved, flower pots and potting soil were strewn around the house, lamps were tossed on the floor and broken, and the baseboard trim along the floor had been ripped from the walls. At that point, the woman said she heard someone coming up from the basement. She said it was her boyfriend, or ex boyfriend now, who grabbed a pot full of dirt and smashed it across her face. She had her cell phone and began calling 911, but the man allegedly took the phone from her and smashed it.

The woman told police the two had been going together for the last four years, but had only been living together for the past couple of months.

The police report indicated a records check was made on the suspect and it turned out that this would not be the first domestic assault attributed to the suspect.

Police took photos of the woman’s injuries and wrote citations that will be issued when the man is found. The woman refused treatment by emergency medical services.

    I guess they might have better luck getting help from the public if they released his name, but I suppose they can't….which makes this story a waste of internet space.

  2. Karlee Larsen-Zach

    Wouldn't it be easier for the public to help if they knew the perpetrators name? What he looks like? Some sort of information

    Useless article

    He should also get interference with a 911 call. Sadly if it does happen to you, that's only when you find out it won't be their first charges :/

    What does it matter if you catch him. All you're gonna do is give him citations? EVEN BARNIE FIFE CAN DO BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Kasey Noller

    He was hand delivered to RPD today and they did nothing…wonder if they will be held responsible when this guy escalates his anger and kills her…then what????

    The worst part is that our judicial system here is so weak. The current DA doesn't have the backbone to create a case and make it stick. Vote for someone who has more integrity than a jellyfish.

    so does anyone know who this pos is? Yes I said pos. Domestic abuse is never ok.

    Must be one of the elected officials or a politicians son.

    There are two sides to every story, and we are only getting hers, how do you know she wasn't an active participant to the fight?

  11. Rex Hymens

    There are two sides to every story, and we are only getting hers, here.

  12. Stephen Rebecca Simpson

    You are right.

  13. Rex Hymens

    That would depend, is it a criminal citation, or just a ticket. If it's a criminal citation, I would assume it's serious, but a ticket for disorderly conduct, would mean that they found in the course of their investigation that the girl was an active participant in a fight. They can't have court right there, he needs to be brought in front of a judge, and the police need to investigate the incident. Like I said, there are two sides to every story, and we only heard hers, but we sure are quick to condemn the guy immediately without any fact checking, or investigation.

    Stephen Rebecca Simpson Thanks Rebecca, I didn't think you would be so receptive. ;-)

  15. Marianne Zura

    How about a photo of the guy?

    Yes, there are two sides to every story; however, there is never an excuse for a man to beat a woman. So he can take his side and shove it up his ass!

  18. Anita Roman McLaughlin

    There are two sides. But when one side results in attacking, then that side is null and void. I don't care how bad a fight escalates, when someone is struck, the person hitting is in the wrong. No sides, anymore. It's called knowing better. Keep your hands to yourself. You learn that shit in the first grade.

  19. Anita Roman McLaughlin

    Rex Hymens , Sides? I don't care if she was yelling directly in his face. The minute you strike, then you are at wrong. We learn it as children. If his ass stayed there and talked to the cops, then the other side would have been shared.
