CORAL SPRINGS, FL – When police arrived at the Coral Springs house, officers met a woman who told them her boyfriend of six years pushed and grabbed her around the neck, a police report said.
Officers didn’t see any marks on her neck, but they did find a large bruise on her thigh and redness with a scab on her head – injuries, the woman told police, that were from previous attacks by her boyfriend, Wesley Ramsdell, the report said.
Police arrested Ramsdell, 29, on a domestic battery charge on April 8.
Ramsdell, who works as a photographer, told officers he didn’t attack the woman on the day of her call to police or during the other incidents, the report said. He told them he wasn’t in a relationship with her and he didn’t live with her. He also said the woman fell down the stairs when he wasn’t there and she’s known to drink a lot and bruise easily.
Police said there is a history of domestic violence incidents at the home as well as calls for help to 911, according to the report. The woman told police Ramsdell has been arrested for domestic violence attacks against her several times in Florida. Police said he has a domestic strangulation arrest in 2016 and another battery arrest in 2019.
The woman showed police a dented wall in the house and said Ramsdell slammed her against it at the end of March, the report said. She said she didn’t report the incident to police because he took her phone. Police said the damage to the wall was at a spot where her head would be if she stood along the wall.
Upon being arrested, Ramsdell showed officers a scratch on his neck that he said came from the woman hitting him, according to the report. The woman said the scratch happened when she was pushing him off her during an attack.
