Robert Russell Avrit of Marietta, who was arrested in April 2001 on burglary charges and in January 2012 on a felony count related to controlled substances, according to records by the Cobb County Superior Court, was charged with a misdemeanor battery count and a felony count of false imprisonment.
According to the warrant, Avrit forced the woman to sit “with her legs crossed for several hours,” holding her by the wrists and arms, which left bruising, and threw her “against the kitchen wall and refrigerator several times causing severe pain in her neck.”
Avrit kept the woman from making any phone calls until he left at approximately 11 a.m., when the woman called the police, the warrant stated. When Cobb County police officers arrived, she declined medical treatment.
Avrit is being held in the Cobb County jail pending a bond hearing.
