A woman told police Bullock struck her with an ax Wednesday morning, knocking her unconscious. When she awoke, she found that he had locked her in a shed behind her Cambridge Circle home, she told police.

The woman was able to escape and call for help. She was taken to Nash General Hospital for treatment, but she had been released by Thursday morning.
