BONNE TERRE, MO (KFVS) -

Bonne Terre police responded to a home after receiving a 911 call reporting a man who was beating a woman on Thursday, Feb. 11 in Bonne Terre.

According to Bonne Terre Police Chief Doug Calvert, Christopher Crump, 27, was still beating the woman at a home on Benham Street when they arrived on the scene around 7 p.m. Thursday.

Calvert said somehow the woman was able to call 911 during the altercation.

Several Bonne Terre officers responded and gained entry into the home. Officers then tased Crump after noticing him still beating the woman and kicking her in the face with his boots. 

Crump was arrested and taken to the hospital for an evaluation. Calvert said he was fine and released. He was then taken to the St. Francois County Jail.

Crump has been charged with assault in the first-degree and could possibly be facing additional charges pending further review.

The woman was flown to a St. Louis hospital for treatment after the incident.

She remains there in serious condition.

Calvert said he believes Crump was there working and removing some branches and trees out of her yard. He said he also believes Crump and the woman may have been in a relationship.
