The officer spoke with the victim who said she was lying in bed when Hood got upset with her and started yelling. He then allegedly punched her in the face, causing a split lip, and her arms.

He allegedly yanked her off the bed and tried to hit her again until she told him her purse was with her mom. Hood then ripped the purse from the victim’s mother, who is in a wheelchair, and drove away with the car. He allegedly told the victim if she called the police that he would kill her.

Hood was given a $500 cash bond in Racine County Circuit court on Thursday.

A status conference is set for Jan. 15 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
