A Rock Hill woman told police her boyfriend assaulted her when she refused to let him use her car. He threatened to break her thumb, cut her wrist with a razor and then guarded her bedroom door as she slept, refusing to let her leave for work, authorities said.

The victim, 24, on Monday told police that at about 9 p.m. Sunday, she and her boyfriend, Jaquavous Darrel McFadden, began arguing when she refused to allow him to use her car because he is known to buy marijuana, according to a Rock Hill police report. McFadden, 22, took her keys and phone, and refused to let her leave his home on Frank Street. He then began punching her, hitting her in the face and eye.

When she tried climbing out of the bedroom window, the woman told police that McFadden grabbed her throat, threw her down on the bed and began choking her, ignoring her tearful pleas to stop, police reported. He grabbed her left thumb and warned her that if she moved, he would break it. He used a razor blade to cut her left wrist, claiming he would kill her and make it look like suicide, the report states.

McFadden finally let her go, the report states, and allowed her to go to sleep at about 3 a.m. Monday. But, as she slept, McFadden sat in front of the door. When she woke up, McFadden was still at the front door, refusing to allow her to leave for work even as her boss called her several times. McFadden finally gave the woman back her keys and phone, ordering her to go to work before her boss called the police.

The woman suffered from cuts on her wrist and lower lip, and scratches on her neck and stomach. Police issued warrants for McFadden, charging him with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and kidnapping. Later on Monday, police found McFadden and arrested him. He began struggling against officers and needed to be carried to a patrol vehicle as he complained about the handcuffs hurting his wrists. Because of the severity of the charges, McFadden will be sent to the York County Detention Center for a bond hearing.
