Ankrum took off in the vehicle, police said. The victim began kicking the back seat and the headrest, demanding he get out of her vehicle.
He then pulled over and that's when she said she was slapped hard enough she "begin hearing bells In her ear," according to charging documents. She added that she couldn't remember the rest of the car ride because she was disoriented.
Ankrum drove them the victim's home where he parked in the middle of a cul-de-sac, left the keys in the glove compartment and took off on foot.
The victim called police to the 7400 block of Wade Circle in reference to the assault saying she felt like she had a "boxer's fracture" in her hand, charging documents said. By her appearance and the way she described her injury, medics believed she could have a fracture.
