A Franklin County man was being held in jail for allegedly beating a woman at a motel in the Stanton area.

Lucas D. Glenn, 25, St. Clair, is charged with first-degree domestic assault in the incident. His bond was set at $50,000.

Deputies were called at midnight on Wednesday, March 14, to respond to the Lost Pine Motel after someone reported an assault. When they arrived they found an intoxicated man on the ground near the motel’s parking lot. He was detained by deputies.

They then found a woman laying on the bathroom floor in one of the motel rooms. She had been beaten and had sustained severe injuries to her face and body, according to a sheriff’s office report. The injuries were so severe that at first the 29-year-old woman was unable to speak to deputies.

She later was taken by ambulance to Missouri Baptist Hospital, Sullivan, but before the ambulance left the motel, the woman was able to tell deputies that she had been beaten by her boyfriend.

Glenn, when questioned by deputies, refused to comment about the incident. He was taken to the Franklin County Jail where he was booked and later charged.

A search of online court records shows that a felony charge against Glenn is pending in Jefferson County.

He is charged with unlawful use of a weapon in an incident that occurred Feb. 15, 2012, according to court records. His bond was set at $3,500 in that case.

The sheriff’s office did not have any updated information on the victim’s condition as The Missourian was going to press Friday.
