An Oxford man was arrested and is being charged with battery for allegedly attacking his girlfriend in October.

On Oct. 9, Hylan Taylor, 22, allegedly choked, pushed and hit his girlfriend after she allegedly refused to arrange a sexual encounter between the couple and a 14-year-old female.

Taylor’s girlfriend, the alleged victim, told the Rockdale County Sheriff Office deputy that the couple are swingers. She and Taylor encountered the young female in question at a bowling alley and the young female reportedly told Taylor’s girlfriend that she was 18 years old.

After the conversation continued, the girl told the couple that she was actually 14. According to the deputy’s report, Taylor’s girlfriend said she refused to engage in a sexual act with the youngster but Taylor insisted she finish “hooking things up.”

Taylor’s girlfriend refused and walked out of the bowling alley to the car. Taylor followed her and then he allegedly choked her and pushed her to the ground. They both got into the car where Taylor allegedly continued to hit her until they got the 3000 block of Irwin Bridge Road.

The deputy noted seeing red marks on the victim’s neck and red marks on her lips. The deputy also noted that it appeared the victim had redness above both eyes, a broken fingernail, blood on her right ear lobe, looking like a ring had been torn out. She also had a lump behind her right ear.

While there a verbal argument continued and at one point Taylor allegedly asked his mother for a gun. He left the scene after “possibly making his way back” to the couples residence in Oxford.

Taylor was arrested Dec. 15 by another agency and then transferred to the Rockdale County Jail. He was released the following day on $2,500 bond.
