ST. MATTHEWS, KY (WAVE) – An argument between a couple breaking up resulted one of them behind bars and the other being treated for injuries.

According to the arrest report, the argument happened on the afternoon of September 30 between Troy Mumford and his live-in girlfriend about her moving out.

The report says Mumford hit the woman with a TV tray across her lower back, struck her on the face leaving her with a possible broken jaw, and hit her with his fist on the right ear.

Police said Mumford wouldn't let the woman leave and took the woman's phone so she couldn't call for help.

Mumford was arrested on charges of assault, terroristic threatening and unlawful imprisonment.

The woman was taken to a hospital for treatment by Metro EMS.
