LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man has been arrested for a domestic violence assault that happened three months ago.

An arrest warrant charges that Joshua Dickerson, 22, jumped up from the couch he was sitting on and hit the woman in the eye before pushing her into a closet.

Dickerson then went into the bedroom and started to take a PlayStation system belonging to the victim. When she confronted him, the warrant says Dickerson pushed her into a bedroom closet and hit her several times on top of the head. Dickerson then fled the apartment taking the woman's keys and her Ford Taurus.

While in the parking lot, Dickerson is accused of trying to run over the woman by backing the car into her. She was able to get out of the way of the car, but Dickerson then rammed the vehicle into a steel security gate at the complex several times causing more than $3,000 in damage to the car.

The warrant says Dickerson abandoned the car and fled on foot to his brother's home,

Dickerson was arrested May 4 on the outstanding warrant. In addition to domestic violence assault, Dickerson is charged with criminal mischief, theft by unlawful taking and wanton endangerment.
