LEBANON, Missouri- The Lebanon Police Department said they were called to a business Tuesday, where a woman reported  that her ex boyfriend assaulted her striking her multiple times. She said he then pushed her out of a vehicle and fled after trying to take her car. The incident reportedly happened around 4 p.m. at a Lebanon business.

Police say in their report that the victim, a 56 year old white female of Buffalo, Missouri had  met her former boyfriend, who she identified as a 54 year old white male of Osage Beach at a business in the 800 block of South Jefferson Avenue. She said they met even though she was the petitioner in an Order of Protection against him. The woman alleges while she was there she got into her ex-boyfriend’s vehicle, and that’s when she says he grabbed her hair and struck her multiple times with his fist.
