When officers arrived on scene, she told officers her boyfriend had asked her to prostitute for him multiple times and that she had been prostituting herself off and on since she was 15 years old.

In the argument, her boyfriend allegedly grabbed her by the leg, pulling her towards him, and then proceeded to punch her in the face under the left eye.
