The alleged attack took place March 3 in the presence of 3- and 6-year-old children, the report said. When a West Palm Beach police officer accompanied a Florida Department of Children and Families investigator on March 17 to look into the incident, he found the victim with “two healing black eyes.”

The woman told police that Noel came home intoxicated and an argument ensued. Noel allegedly told the children, “Watch what I do to (the victim)” before dragging her by the hair into a bathroom while punching and kicking her, the report said.

While in the bathroom, Noel grabbed a sock and used it to smear dog feces on the woman, according to the report.

The woman tried to jump out a third-story window, but was dragged back into the bathroom by Noel, the report said. Noel allegedly took the woman’s cellphone so that she could not call police.

The woman left the home the next day when Noel went to work. On March 7, the woman filed for a restraining order but rescinded it the next day in the hope that she and Noel “could work it out for the family,” the report said.
