GARY | A 30-year-old Gary man has been charged in the beating of a woman that left her with severe injuries.
Lake County prosecutors filed a warrant March 6 for Jarrod Reddix, who has been charged with aggravated battery, criminal confinement and battery resulting in serious bodily injury in connection with an incident that occurred at a home in the 1000 block of Decatur Street around 10 p.m. on Jan. 22.
According to reports, the victim arrived at the home and had just finished speaking with Reddix, when the suspect allegedly grabbed her by her shirt.
The two reportedly struggled until they fell outside, at which point Reddix reportedly began slamming the victim’s head onto the concrete porch.
The victim reportedly suffered multiple injuries, including a cut over her left eye that required 13 stitches, fractures to both of her eye sockets, cuts to her face, and bruises to her neck and chest.
The victim told authorities that prior to the incident, Reddix had reportedly been living in the home with the victim’s uncle for the past couple of year since his release from prison.
