BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A Burlington man is expected in court Monday after police say he violently beat and threatened his girlfriend.

Police say it happened Friday night in a parking lot on South Winooski Avenue.

They arrested Tyshawn Lee , 20, Saturday morning at Leddy Park near the hockey rink after finding his car there.

Police say Lee pulled his girlfriend to the ground by her hair, pinned her down, kicked her in the stomach and slammed her head on the ground multiple times.

He’s also accused of holding a gun to her head earlier that day.

Lee faces a number of domestic assault charges. He’s being held on $25,000 bail and conditions to only be released to a responsible adult.
