According to an affidavit filed by Nesquehoning police officer Carl Breiner, a woman who appeared to be in distress came to the police station door.
He helped her into the station, and she reported that Rodriguez attacked her. Marks on her neck were visible and she had an ankle injury.
The victim told police Rodriguez took their two children and left in a vehicle, and she walked to the police station.
