A teen has been given probation for allegedly picking up and assaulting a woman.
The teen, Addison D. Farr, 19, entered a guilty pleas to reduced charges of false imprisonment and domestic assault. Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley issued two 11-month, 29-day probationary sentences for the misdemeanor offenses and ordered him to undergo the batterer intervention program. He had faced the possibility of 12 years in prison on the original charges of kidnapping and felony assault.
His charges come after he offered a woman a ride on Beersheba Street. He reportedly knew the woman prior to the incident.
“He saw her at the Delta Station on Beersheba Street and wanted her to get into his car so they could talk,” said Police Sgt. Kenneth Seagraves. “When she got into the car, the subject put the car into gear and took off.”
The victim said she tried to get Farr to stop, but he refused.
“He told her he was going to take her to his mother’s house on Great Falls Road but instead took her to an undisclosed area on Hennessee Bridge Road,” Seagraves said. “She was able to get out of the vehicle and started walking toward the road.”
The victim said Farr ran and tackled her.
“He started kicking, biting and strangling her,” Seagraves said.
Eventually Farr dropped the woman off in front of a friend’s house. Police were called and they noted she had bite marks on her arms, a cut on her forehead, and a bruised left eye.
