When she tried to call police on her cellular phone, he grabbed the phone from her and threw it striking her in the hand. Her hand was swollen and bruised and she said she was in pain.
He also allegedly threatened to kill her if he went to jail.
Dunn had a previous domestic violence conviction from 2004. He was arrested and lodged in jail.
