Woodrow punched a hole in a closet door before breaking the knob on the bathroom door to get to Monique. He strangled her again, forcing her to the floor and her friend got between them once more, giving Monique time to escape the building. While Monique was driving around looking for help, Woodrow busted the wifi box and cut the power cord with a knife. Monique returned when she became worried for her friend. Woodrow was outside, so she quickly ran inside and locked him out. Officers observed scratches on Monique’s neck and face.
