A Vero Beach area woman told Indian River County Sheriff’s Office deputy that her live-in boyfriend stopped pinning her to the bed only to punch her in the face.
The woman’s 4-year-old girl was laying on bed at the time, a deputy put in an arrest report — and backed up her story.
Brandon Kormanec, 29, said he didn’t punch the woman. What the deputy described as an “extremely swollen” top lip and “dried blood around her lips” Kormanec credited to “a pimple.”
The report says the woman claimed Monday morning’s IRCSO domestic disturbance visit to the home, the third in eight days, began with Kormanec waking her up to argue about the June 28 disturbance. All that noise awakened her daughter, also asleep on the bed.
The woman described the 5-foot-9, 190-pound Kormanec jumping onto her stomach. He then punched her in the mouth.
“(Her) 4-year-old daughter also stated she saw Kormanec hit her mother in the face,” the report stated.
Kormanec posted $2,500 bond after being arrested on a charge of misdemeanor battery. In February, he finished 14 months in prison for a trafficking in stolen property and giving false information to a pawnbroker.
