LITTLE ROCK, AR – A man has been arrested after allegedly beating his girlfriend.
Police were called to the Fair Park Gardens apartments on Fair Park Blvd. shortly after 7 p.m. Thursday.
That’s where residents had reported hearing a commotion and told officers they believed a woman was being beaten inside her home.
Officers knocked on the door but got no response. They then went inside another apartment and heard the disturbance in the above apartment.
