Officers from the Frederick Police Department arrested a subject for assaulting his girlfriend with a firearm.
On 01/29/2015 at approximately 12:43PM, Officer Wolf of the Frederick Police Department was dispatched to an assault that occurred earlier.

The victim stated she was struck in the face with a handgun and choked repeatedly while in the suspects’ residence. The victim sustained injuries consistent with her statement.
