NORTH COLLEGE HILL, OH (FOX19) -

The North College Hill man who attempted to attack his wife was charged with attempted murder Thursday. 

Authorities say 36-year-old Andre Jeter attacked his wife Monica Jeter in the 1400 block of Foxwood Drive just before 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.

By the time police arrived, he had fled the scene.

Jeter turned himself in late Wednesday morning to Springfield police.  

Responding officers found Monica semi-unconscious in a pool of blood, according to North College Hill Police Chief Gary Foust. She was transported to the hospital with possible life-threatening injuries and immediately went into surgery. Her condition is unknown at this time.

Officials say a weapon was used in the attack but they have not yet said what kind of weapon it was.

According to Hamilton County dispatchers, the couple's children found Monica after she was attacked and it was their 12-year-old child who made the 911 call.

"My dad, he just hit my mom and she's bleeding a lot and he jumped on her and everything and now he's gone he just left, ran," the boy, 12, told the dispatcher.

His siblings, ages 10, 11 and 9, also were home at the time of the attack. They have been placed with family members and child case workers with Hamilton County Job and Family Services have been notified.

North College Hill police later located Jeter who was taken into custody by the Springfield Police Department.

According to court records, Jeter was arrested in January on a domestic violence charge. Jeter put his wife in a choke hold and threw her to the ground, the records state.

Monica filed a restraining order against Jeter one day after the incident. One month later, Jeter requested to eliminate the order so he could see his children. That request was granted, according to court documents.
