LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A woman says she was held against her will and assaulted by her ex-boyfriend in her own home.

Her entire ordeal began on July 18, when the victim says she was sleeping when she woke up to find her ex standing over her, holding a golf club. According to an arrest warrant, over the next few hours, Jerome Blevins, 48, made statements such as, “You don’t really love me, do you.”

When the victim would answer questions, he would hit her with the golf club. He then grabbed three knives and said he would cut her. After a few hours, Blevins said it was time to go to bed and moved a dresser in front of the door so the victim could not leave.

When she asked to use the restroom, he made her stand in the bathtub so he could watch her.

Blevins said she could leave on Monday, when the injuries on her face healed. At one point Blevins left, but was within viewing distance of the apartment so the victim was scared to leave. Later, Blevins took her car and left.

At this point, the victim fled and a friend took her to the hospital.

Blevins and the woman had previously lived together.
