A woman screaming hysterically.
That’s what Lawrenceburg police officer David Patterson says he heard early Sunday morning when he approached the front door of a residence at 109 Carlton Drive to investigate a noise complaint.
Patterson says he knocked on the door, but quickly decided that waiting for a response wouldn’t do. Instead, he forced his way inside and found a nude, bleeding and bruised woman lying on a bed.
“She was screaming hysterical and crying ‘help me, help me,’” Patterson said in an interview Monday afternoon.
