Police: Man Hits Witness With Truck After Argument With Girlfriend In Oxford

OXFORD (CBS) – A 21-year-old man originally thought to be involved in a possible abduction in Oxford will face charges after turning himself to police in on Friday.

Police said witnesses saw Alex Schmitt and 21-year-old Kylie Provencher, arguing outside a Walmart in Oxford around 7:30 a.m.

Witnesses say Schmitt hopped in his truck and began doing donuts around the parking lot before forcibly shoving the Provencher into the truck.

Two hours later, Schmitt turned himself in to police. Provencher, who turned out to be Schmitt’s girlfriend, was with him.

“It was a domestic situation, that got way out of control,” said Oxford Police Sgt. Tony Saad.

Witnesses, including Joseph Simon, didn’t realize that at the time.  Simon thought he was witnessing an abduction, said he tried to stop it.

Police say Schmitt struck Simon with his truck and took off.

    Hmm, how is this article updated 9 minutes ago and still doesn’t mention that the suspect turned himself into State Police some time ago?

    Actually, I can read just fine. They ‘edited’ the article AFTER I posted my comments. Look at my comment timestamp , then look at the article timestamp.

    They actually edited twice since my timestamp, the first time I think about 40 minutes after my comment (and they still didn’t mention they were looking for the truck in Millbury) and then again after lunch. Maybe even more…

    Bitch at me if I make a mistake, and I do make some doozies, but make sure YOU are right when you start heaving stones!
