FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) - A 68-year-old woman is hospitalized Friday morning after she was abducted in a Burger King parking lot and put in the trunk of a car late Thursday.

Her longtime live-in boyfriend, Jerome Rocquemore, 63, was booked into the Butler County jail on abduction and domestic violence charges early Friday.

He may face additional charges, depending on the extent of the woman's injuries, according to Fairfield police.

Officers were called to the Burger King at 7321 Dixie Highway (Ohio 4) just after 11 p.m. when a witness called 911 to report a man assaulted a woman, forced her into the trunk of a car and sped off.

Fairfield police were able to track the car to a residence in the 6000 block of Hemmlin Avenue in Golf Manor.

Golf Manor officers went to the home and found the woman and suspect. They think she was in the trunk about 20 minutes. She was already out of the trunk when police arrived.

She was taken to Jewish Hospital Kenwood, and Rocquemore was arrested.

The couple has a violent history, court records show.

Rocquemore was sentenced to six months in a state prison in 2005 after violating his parole following a conviction on a felony domestic violence charge.

Court records show he struck the woman over the head with a chair at their Hemmlin Avenue residence on June 7, 2003.

He also has served state prison time on a 2002 conviction on an aggravated possession of drugs charge.
