STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. – A woman was severely beaten after she refused to have sex with a man, police say.

Sheriff’s deputies were called Wednesday to 37 Kennesaw Drive , near U.S. 1, after they received a 911 hang up-call from the home.

When they arrived, they found a bloodied 23-year-old woman who had been beaten with a nightstick after refusing to have sex with the man who lives there, said Stafford Sheriff’s spokesman Bill Kennedy.

The woman was treated for her injuries at a local hospital and her attacker arrested, police said.

An investigation showed the victim met her attacker on Foreston Woods Drive, about a mile and half from where she was assaulted.

The victim went home with the man and was later assaulted, police say.

Joseph Broadway, 37, is charged with abduction with the intent to defile, aggravated malicious wounding and with attempted rape, said Kennedy.

He is being held without bond.
