Officers from the Covington Police Department were called to a home on Hannah Street Saturday afternoon after a 911 came in where a woman could be heard screaming in the background.

Dispatch operators reportedly heard a woman screaming, "I am not going with you," and, "I don't know where I am." The operator also allegedly told officers she heard a male voice yelling, "jump out of the car."

Officers checked the area where the call had originated from and did not locate a man or a woman but while checking the area officers once again received a call from dispatch, who told them members of security at Newton Medical Center had called and reported that someone pushed a black female out of a Dodge Magnum in the parking lot, then headed east on U.S. Highway 278.

Unable to locate the vehicle, officers headed to the hospital. When they arrived they found a black female sitting in a wheelchair in the emergency room crying. They also noticed that she had abrasions to the left side of her body.

The 27-year-old allegedly said that she had just been released from the Rockdale County Jail the night before and that her boyfriend, Micah D. Archibald Jr., bonded her out of jail for $406. She reportedly told officers that the two had argued about the money used to bond her out of jail and that he struck her while she was in his vehicle and then took her cell phone.

She also allegedly told officers that Archibald drove to the hospital and pushed her out of the vehicle while it was still moving. She also told them he had a weapon in his vehicle, according to reports. When she was pushed out, she reportedly sustained injuries to her left shoulder, arm, hand and foot as she fell onto the pavement.

Authorities were unable to locate Archibald at the time, though they checked an address where the victim said he had been staying with his sister. He has yet to be arrested.
