Woman in hospital after beaten, cut

WACO, TX - A 46-year-old Waco man is facing charges after his girlfriend was beaten and cut after being attacked while she was sleeping.

Michael Rennie Taylor was booked into the McLennan Count Jail early Tuesday morning on charges of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury with a deadly weapon with a family violence finding.

Police say they were called to the 1000 block of Colcord Avenue about midnight Monday night on a disturbance call.

They found a female victim who told officers she had been sleeping when her boyfriend started beating her, then cutting her with an unknown object.

She tried several times to get away from him before finally escaping to a neighboring house to call for help.

She was transported to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Hospital with multiple cuts and other injuries.

She told officers she thought Taylor was under the influence of some kind of " mind altering drug".

Officers found Taylor hiding behind a shed in the backyard of his residence and were able to take him into custody.
