DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton man was indicted Thursday for the beating a woman at the end of August.
Witnesses called police on August 31 reporting that a woman had been found laying face-down on the basement floor inside a home at 261 Westwood Avenue.
She was found unresponsive with severe swelling to her face and head and was rushed to the hospital, where she remains in critical condition.
Upon investigation, officials say 28-year-old Travion Montgomery beat the women and fled the scene.
He was indicted by the Montgomery County Grand Jury for one count of Felonious Assault causing Serious Physical Harm, a second-degree felony.
He is being held in the Montgomery County Jail on a $500,000 bond set by the Dayton Municipal Court and will be arraigned on September 25.
On July 29, Montgomery posted a bond set by the court and was placed on the Electronic Home Detention Program (EHDP) for a previous Robbery charge.
He absconded from the program on August 2.
The court then issued a capias for his arrest on August 6, setting bond upon his arrest at $30,000 with EHDP.
He was still at large during the time of his attack on the victim.
