Police are searching for a 27-year-old man after he assaulted his 22-year-old wife inside her West Britt David Road apartment Tuesday, according to a Columbus police report.
Officers arrived at the 2400 block apartment after receiving reports that a man was hitting and arguing with a woman in the parking lot around 7 p.m. The victim told police her husband, Carlos Aliciq Rivera, stared arguing with her after he accused her of having an affair. He punched her several times in the face, threw her to he floor and choked her, according to the report.
Police noted damage to the sliding glass door in the apartment, which the victim said occurred some time before she returned home from work. The victim also told police she moved into the apartment two days earlier, and allowed her husband to stay at the apartment because he had recently been kicked out of his own.
A sufficient physical description of Rivera was not available. He is wanted for aggravated assault. Anyone with more information should contact Investigative Services at (706) 653-3400.
