RICHMOND (BCN)

A Richmond man is behind bars after pistol-whipping his girlfriend with a replica handgun on Wednesday night, a police spokeswoman said today.

The victim and suspect were arguing at a home in the 500 block of Bissell Avenue when the man struck the woman in the head with what the woman believed was a handgun, Richmond police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.

The woman left the home and called police, who arrived a short time later and had to talk the man into leaving the house, Abetkov said.

He was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and taken to county jail.

Police later discovered that the weapon used in the assault was a BB gun, according to Abetkov.

The victim received medical treatment for her injuries and was released.
