(SAINT MEINRAD) - A Spencer County man remains behind bars after a Saturday morning argument became physical.

Around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, the Spencer County Emergency Dispatch received a report of a female who had been severely battered by her boyfriend and was being held against her will in a Saint Meinrad home.

Indiana State Police Troopers Trey Lytton and Ryan Conrad arrived to find the 24-year-old woman standing outside the home with a swollen and bloody eye and bruises on her face, arms and legs.

The female told troopers that she had been in a verbal argument with her boyfriend, 26-year-old Corey Collignon of Saint Meinrad.

The woman told troopers that Collignon punched her in the eye, knocking her to the floor. He then allegedly grabbed her by the wrist, dragging her through the living room, kitchen and a bedroom before dragging her into another room in the house where he held her to the ground and took her car keys.

She was finally able to call for help and escape outside to wait for help to arrive.

Troopers Lytton and Conrad, with Spencer County Deputies Dale Kessinger, Justin Hester and his K-9 partner "Ciro" searched the residence and property but were unable to find Collignon.
