Man suffers head trauma
after domestic dispute
A local man is in critical condition after being dragged by a vehicle following a late night domestic dispute.
On Thursday, April 9, 2015, at approximately 1:14 a.m., Alexander County 911 Communications received a call to 106 Milstead Mobile Home Park, Taylorsville, in reference to someone being hit by a vehicle.
Upon arrival, officers found a man named Angel Alejo, age 36, suffering from major head trauma. Alejo was transported by Alexander County EMS to Frye Regional Medical Center and later moved to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and was listed in critical condition.
According to Tod Jones, Chief Deputy, the investigation shows that there had been a domestic dispute at the home. As family members were leaving the residence in a 1996 Dodge Caravan, Mr. Alejo broke out a back tail light, and then grabbed hold of the door handle on the driver’s side rear door and was dragged about 15 feet, resulting in the injuries.
No charges have been filed at this time and the investigation is continuing.
