Man Accused Of Beating Girlfriend, Slashing Her Tires

A West Palm Beach man is accused of hitting his girlfriend before slashing her tires, according to an article in the Sun Sentinel.

A woman told police she came home to find her boyfriend sitting on the couch, drinking. When she walked inside, Elonzo Williams jumped off the couch and attacked her. She tried to leave, but he kept blocking the door.

When she eventually managed to make it outside, Williams followed her, pulled out a knife, and slashed all four tires on her car. He then told her that she would be next.

The woman was able to get away and called police. Officers found Williams walking with a woman he had just met from a mental health facility. Williams faces charges of aggravated assault, battery, false imprisonment, criminal mischief and a domestic violence court order violation.
