A Martinez man is facing aggravated battery charges after punching a woman repeatedly in the face, causing her to lose three teeth and break her jaw.
Justin Conklin, 26, was arrested last Wednesday in an assault on 25-year-old Brittany Callison, who lives with him on Oak Lake Drive, authorities said.
Conklin and the victim were arguing at 1 in the morning outside the home when Conklin punched her in the face several times. She lost three teeth and a doctor later said her jaw was broken in several places, requiring surgery to fix.
Just hours before the attack, deputies had been called to the same home, where Conklin’s wife told authorities that her husband had shoved her after accusing her of cheating on him. She said he picked her up and slammed her to the ground and threw her phone, damaging it.
A deputy didn’t notice any injuries and decided to just give him a citation for disorderly conduct. He promised to leave the home for the rest of the night to avoid conflict, but he was back within a few hours, a report says.
