York man accused of assaulting girlfriend with car tag

— Warrants have been issued for a York man with a history of domestic violence charges after police say he assaulted his live-in girlfriend with a tin-plated vehicle tag and left her with a bleeding head wound on Wednesday.

Police responding to a call about a domestic incident arrived at a Singletary Lane home, where a woman, 30, told officers, “He hit me and ran off,” according to a York Police report. She identified her attacker as Pherron Jacovis Hutchinson, her 33-year-old boyfriend.

The woman told police she and Hutchinson were arguing about a car in the driveway. The woman said she took the license plate off the car and told him he was no longer allowed to drive her car, the report states. That’s when Hutchinson grabbed the tag and hit her in the head, resulting in a gash that would not stop bleeding.

Hutchinson then grabbed her car keys and threw them and the car tag in the trunk before shutting it, the report states.

EMS took the woman to receive treatment. A witness confirmed the woman’s account of events and said Hutchinson walked away from the home.

Police were unable to find him, but have issued warrants for his arrest, charging him with criminal domestic violence offense, according to police.

Records with the State Law Enforcement Division show Hutchinson has a history of criminal domestic violence charges. He received his first domestic violence conviction in 2002, followed by another one in 2003. In 2005, he was convicted for the same offense and then again in 2006.

Within those years, he was twice charged with criminal domestic violence but not convicted.
