An Oran, Missouri man has been arrested for domestic assault, armed criminal action, and property damage charges.

Sheriff Rick Walter says that on Monday, deputies responded to 164 Elm in Haywood City for an assault in progress.

Deputies arrived and made contact with the victim, who had blood coming from her head, a swollen eye, and several abrasions on her face and neck. 

The victim said Freddie C. Banks, 43, of Oran, struck her several times in the face with a closed fist, and struck her in the head with a hammer.

The victim was not able to tell deputies how many times she was struck due to losing consciousness during the assault. 

When Banks was questioned, he became uncooperative and began cursing the deputies. 

Banks was arrested and taken to the Scott County Jail pending the filing of formal charges.

The victim was taken to a local hospital due to her injuries. 

Banks remains in custody at the Scott County Jail.

Bond was set by the court at $5,000 cash only and no contact with the victim.
