Chattanooga police say Marcus Carter went to his girlfriend's Fourth Avenue apartment on Wednesday.  

When the couple began to argue, she asked him to leave.

That's when she says he struck her.  

She tried to cancel the call. When officers arrived, Carter fled and was caught nearby.  

The woman told police she wouldn't go to court. She said she feared Carter would get someone to go after her.

At last check, he remains in jail on a 22-thousand dollar bond.
