Woman Beaten and Locked in Dog Kennel

A St. Paul woman was beaten several times and locked inside a dog kennel Sunday after telling her boyfriend of 3 months that she was breaking up with him, police said.
Luke Brandon Scott, 29, has been charged with first and second degree assault, false imprisonment, and making terroristic threats after police arrived at a SuperAmerica responding to a call by a woman saying that she was held captive and repeatedly beaten by Scott, according to the Pioneer Press.
The woman reported that she was locked inside the dog kennel after Scott punched her in the face for trying to leave his house, according to the Star Tribune.
She then grabbed Scott's dog, thinking it would stop him from hitting her, but he grabbed the pooch and threw it against a wall, the Pioneer Press said.
The woman managed to escape to the backyard at one point but Scott's 6-foot tall fence kept her from leaving. She also tried to escape by smashing a front window out with a bottle which Scott then hit her in the face with, according to the Star Tribune.
When Scott let the woman go around 6 a.m. Monday, the woman walked to a nearby SuperAmerica and called authorities. She suffered major cuts to her lip and had swelling, bruising, and loose teeth, the Pioneer Press said.
Scott is being held on a $50,000 bail at the Ramsey County jail, according to the Star Tribune.
