On Jan. 24 about 8:15 a.m. deputies received a call of a domestic violence incident at a home on Palo Verde Court in Mohave Valley. Deputies say they arrived and found the victim outside the home.
Police say the victim alleged that she had been assaulted and held against her will by Andrews, who was still inside the residence with their infant child.
Deputies say they went to the front door, where they found Andrews, who was taken into custody.
The investigation revealed that Andrews had been drinking since the night prior to the incident.
The victim alleges Andrews assaulted her by punching her in the head, slapping her in the mouth, and trying to force sexual intercourse.
