A Framingham man jumped on the hood of a moving vehicle on Sunday to try to stop his girlfriend from leaving and calling 911, police said.
Kenneth C. Terenzi, 38, was arrested Sunday at 11:06 p.m. after the dispute, police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany said.
Police went to the Walgreens on Rte. 9 after getting a 911 call from a woman saying her boyfriend had assaulted her at her 16 Centennial Place apartment.
The officer recognized the woman when he met with her because Terenzi had told police around 6:20 p.m. that she had overdosed, Shastany said.
"That was not the case," the lieutenant said. "He became aggressive with (paramedics and officers), and (the girlfriend) said she did not want him there so the police told him to leave."
Terenzi left but came back later and assaulted her, Shastany said.
The woman, whom police did not name, tried to call the police on her cell phone, but he grabbed the phone from her hands.
"He said, 'You're not calling the police,' " Shastany said.
The victim also tried to use her home phone, but Terenzi ripped the cord out of the wall.
He blocked her from leaving, but she eventually pushed by him, ran outside and jumped into his car because she knew he left the keys in it, Shastany said.
"She was looking for a phone and he jumped on the hood, yelling at her," the lieutenant said. "She panicked and she drove off. He promised to give her back the cell phone if she pulled over."
She pulled over and opened the window partially, but he did not give her the phone, so she drove off and called police.
Terenzi, of 20 Mayflower Road, was arrested and charged with domestic assault and battery and malicious mischief causing more than $250 worth of damage.
He was released without bail after his Framingham District Court arraignment on Monday. He is due back in court on Sept. 4 for a pretrial conference.
