The physical assault against the young woman has left her with a swollen right eye and tender head.

According to the woman, Benn Jr. barged into her home during the pre-dawn hours of Sunday and assaulted her.

She said that on hearing someone knock on the door, she opened thinking that it was her brother whom she had been expecting. However, it was Benn Jr. who stormed in and started his ruthless attack.
