Man arrested after 9-hour domestic assault

Quentin Townsell, 30, was arrested early Wednesday after the hours-long assault that left the 28-year-old woman with injuries all over her body, according to Interim Rochester Police Chief John Sherwin.

A Rochester man will likely face charges after police say he held his girlfriend captive and beat her for nearly nine hours.

Quentin Townsell, 30, was arrested early Wednesday after the hours-long assault that left the 28-year-old woman with injuries all over her body, according to Interim Rochester Police Chief John Sherwin.

The incident began around 1 p.m. Tuesday, when the woman woke up to Townsell punching her in the head, Sherwin said. He had apparently gone through the woman’s phone while she was sleeping and felt that she was not being faithful.

Townsell forced the woman into a bedroom, restrained her and then threatened to kill her, Sherwin said.

Eventually, Townsell left and the woman was able to go to the hospital for medical treatment. Townsell had apparently "punched her all over," according to Sherwin, leaving her with bumps on her head and red marks on her back and shoulders.

Townsell returned to the woman’s home, around 10 p.m., while she was at the hospital, and threatened another person at the home. That person called police.

Townsell was arrested sometime after midnight at his residence, 938 Eighth Ave NE.
