MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A man is charged after police say he attacked his ex-girlfriend while she was at work.
The victim told them she was assaulted by her child’s father while working Tuesday afternoon.
Officers were called to the 3400 block of Park in Orange Mound when the victim said she was helping a customer when her ex-boyfriend, Adarion Mobley interrupted her.
A witness said the woman came around the counter and told the suspect to leave, but he kept arguing with her.
The suspect's girlfriend then entered the business and stood at the door, according to MPD.
