CONYERS - A Lithonia resident had to be treated at the local hospital after her ex-boyfriend allegedly assaulted her and dumped her on a street corner.

South Carolina resident Marquise Bush, 25, was arrested Thursday night and is being charged with battery and robbery for the incident that left the 25-year-old victim bloody and bruised.

According to the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office report, the female victim met up with Bush at the Wal-Mart on Panola Road in DeKalb County. The two then went to an unnamed lounge.

After leaving the lounge, Bush drove to the intersection of Flat Bridge Road and Alexanders Lake Road in Rockdale. While it's unclear as to why, once they arrived at the intersection, Bush told the victim to get out of the car. She refused.

"When (the victim) refused to get out of the vehicle, Mr. Bush pulled her out of the vehicle and began beating and scratching her," RCSO Deputy Corey Wheeles wrote in his report. "At this time Mr. Bush left the location, leaving (the victim) in the street."

Wheeles described the victim as having blood on her arms, legs, face and chest with bruising around her neck, nose and eye.

The victim's purse, which contained her cell phone and keys to her car and residence, was allegedly left in the Bush's car after the altercation. So, the victim walked "about half a mile" to the nearest house in the 5200 block of Alexanders Lake Road.

The residents at the house assisted her by called the 9-1-1. She was then transported to the Rockdale Medical Center, where a nurse stated she also had a broken nose.

The victim's father, who went to the hospital, told deputies this wasn't the first altercation between his daughter and Bush. Last year, another incident happened between the two and a police report was filed with the DeKalb County Police Department, but the victim opted not to press charges against Bush.

Bush was released from the Rockdale County Jail Sunday on a $10,000 bond.
