ECSO: Suspect Pistol Whipped After Strangling Girlfriend

August 30, 2018

Deputies discovered a Walnut Hill man was pistol-whipped after he allegedly strangled his girlfriend.

Cordaryl Lewis was charged with domestic battery by strangulation for the attack on the woman.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to Atmore Community Hospital where the victim  said she became involved in a verbal argument with Lewis about leaving the house they had just bought. The altercation became physical and Lewis choked her to the point that she lost consciousness, according to an arrest report. Her injuries were consistent with her statement, according to deputies.

When deputies arrived at the couple’s home in Walnut Hill, they found Lewis had multiple wounds to his face and was bleeding heavily after being pistol whipped by a third party whose name has not been released. That individual has not been charged.

The Sheriff’s Office said Lewis has a 1-year old child with the victim.

Lewis was transported to Sacred Heart Hospital and released prior to being booking into the Escambia County Jail. He was later released on a $5,000 bond.

    People shouldn’t misuse tools. You could tear up a pistol that way. Use as designed.

    They make pistols too lightweight.

    The ink wasn’t even dry on those closing papers for the house. Is there such a thing as annulment on buying a house? The woman doesn’t need this with a baby involved. Very sad.

    Hmmm… well this guy got lucky that the person who did the pistol whipping didn’t find another use for that pistol. And I hope the girlfriend and the baby get away from this guy.
