A woman who identified a male companion Friday night as an assailant who beat her face bloody changed her story the next day, saying that he had not been at their residence at the time.

Hazel Bradford, 100 block Colquitt Street, Ellenton, reported that a male companion hit her repeatedly in the face after waking her up at about 8:30 p.m. She told police that she escaped and went to a neighbor’s residence, where she called 911.

Bradford, who appeared to be extremely intoxicated, had blood covering her face, a scrape on her left cheek and could not breathe through her  nose, sheriff’s reports said. She identified the alleged attacker and told officers that he left on foot. She said he possibly would head to Adel and that she wanted him arrested.

When the deputy followed up with her the next day she denied that the man she identified had been there and said that someone must have come in and attacked her after she fell asleep with the door open.

The night of the beating, Bradford fell down on the steps three times, sheriff’s reports said.

Bradford refused treatment from Emergency Medical Service personnel, who, along with a witness, told police that incidents between Bradford and her boyfriend occur regularly, sheriff’s reports said. She also refused offers to go to a domestic abuse shelter or to a relative’s residence.

Officers told her to call 911 if she needed assistance again.
