APD: After man attacks woman, different driver strikes her with car

After responding to a disturbance in a Pflugerville neighborhood, police have accused one man of repeatedly punching a woman and another man of striking the woman with his vehicle.

Police reported to the residence located at Canyon Sage Lane Saturday night after receiving several calls from neighbors about a disturbance. When they arrived, they discovered that a man named Tardrick Fowler had gotten into an argument with the mother of his child in the front seats of a car. Three of her children were in the back seat while he allegedly punched the woman multiple times in the face. Police said the two were arguing over car keys.

Following the alleged attack, neighbors told officers Fowler then ran from the car and quickly jumped into a Ferrari that was waiting on the street and being driven by someone else named Curtis Lee Meeks Jr. Witnesses believed the woman tried to prevent the Ferrari from leaving because Fowler had her keys. 

A witness said he then saw the Ferrari "aggressively rush her and hit her with the vehicle," causing her to fall to the ground. The Ferrari fled afterward and was later stopped by officers.

The woman -- who was taken to a hospital after the alleged attack -- had visible bruises on her face, a busted lip, blood in her mouth and scrapes on her palms consistent with contact with concrete.

Meeks faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is not in custody at the Travis County Jail as of Monday afternoon. Fowler is not in custody as of Monday afternoon either.
