A Springfield man is accused of slamming a woman’s head into a television after the victim said she was depressed.
Todd Cochran, 55, is charged with felonious assault and domestic violence in Clark County Municipal Court. He is accused of cutting the victim with a knife, grabbing her by the hair and throwing her to the ground, striking her in the face with a closed fist and slamming her into the T.V.
In a statement provided to police, the woman said she walked out of the bathroom of a home on 1200 block of Bell Avenue on Sunday when she announced she was depressed.
“He stated no one was going to go anywhere, he grabbed me and grabbed the knife, threw me down and told me I was weak and pathetic and no one was leaving to go anywhere,” the report says.
It is unclear by the police report where the knife came from but it was collected as evidence police say. The report says the victim was cut on the wrist area with the knife.
