February 15, 2019

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A man on the run for weeks has been arrested in connection with the hours-long assault of a woman in January in Tacoma.

The News Tribune reports Jermaine Gore Jr. pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Pierce County Superior Court to assault and was ordered held on $1 million bail.

Court documents say on Jan. 28 after Gore discovered an old photo on social media, he held the woman against her will and beat her with a cord over a 14-hour period.

Documents say the woman suffered fractured ribs, fractured vertebrae, a fractured eye socket and kidney failure.

Authorities arrested Gore at a Lakewood apartment Tuesday after receiving a tip.

Because of Gore’s previous convictions, if he is convicted this time, he could face life in prison without parole.
