An Elk Grove domestic violence victim and a one-year-old baby were able to escape after being held against their will yesterday.

The alleged domestic violence incident started on Monday when the victim was allegedly beaten by 22-year old Alexander Anthony Moreno (pictured above). When the victim attempted to leave the apartment, Moreno dragged the victim by the shoulders down a hallway back into the apartment.

While the victim was attempting to escape, Moreno left infant child unattended on a second-story balcony. On Tuesday morning, the victim was about to exit the apartment and sought the help of a stranger who contacted Elk Grove Police.

Responding officers arrested Moreno who is being held at the county jail on a $1 million dollar bail and faces felony child endangerment, kidnapping, domestic violence and violation of probation charges. Arraignment is scheduled for Thursday afternoon. 

The victim suffered visible injuries as a result of the beating and was granted an emergency protection order.
