CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston police say a man who allegedly held his wife against her will and pushed her down the stairs during an argument early Wednesday morning has turned himself in.

Adrian Nicholas Green, 32, was wanted on charges of kidnapping and criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.

According to a police report, the incident stemmed from an argument which started around midnight while Green and his wife were at Cutty's, a St. Philip Street bar. Green's wife said the argument started because she wanted to leave and he did not. The couple eventually walked to their home at 399 Huger Street, where the argument continued

The victim told police Green forced her into the master bedroom and punched her in the face, causing the victim to fall onto the bed. The woman said Green then took off her pants and underwear in an attempt to rape her, but she fought him off with a kick to the groin.

The victim said she then ran into another bedroom to try and get away, but Green got in and continued to push her and argue with her. The woman said she then started to go down the stairs, but Green used two hands to push her backwards down the stairs. The victim said she only fell down a few stairs before Green grabbed her dragged her back up.

The woman said she suffered a large cut to her right shin during her tumble. She also said Green then told her she could leave the home "when she changed out of her bloody clothes and cleaned up her face."

Both the victim and Green then left the home separately. The woman called police after a friend went with her to Roper St. Francis to be treated for injuries to her face, right leg, right hand, and back.
