According to the court documents, the victim sought assistance from a third party when a fight broke out of with Warth.
The victim sustained a large gash on the side of her head and injuries to her legs when Warth place a couch in front of the door of their residence.
He then proceeded to strike the victim with an aluminum baseball bat and throw a milk crate at her.
The injuries resulted in the need for medical treatment including stitches.
When authorities attempted to make contact with Warth, it was reported that he had fled the scene of the crime into a nearby field.

This is Warth’s third charge of domestic abuse assault following the lifting of a no-contact order with the victim on Sept. 10.
