Man reportedly beats girlfriend with TV remote

(WMC-TV) - Memphis Police are investigating a crime Sunday morning where a man is accused of beating his girlfriend with a TV remote. 

22-year-old Jacob Wamble now faces several charges including aggravated kidnapping.

He's also charged with robbing his girlfriend of $40. According to the affidavit, Wamble drove the woman to an ATM and forced her to withdraw cash.

Investigators said Wamble also tied up his girlfriend with bed sheets and threatened to kill her.

In a Facebook message, the woman said she wants to help spread awareness of domestic violence and that women need be careful when it comes to trust and dating.

"This wasn't fair to me at all and I don't want another woman to go through what I had to," she said. 

Wamble was arrested and transported to the Shelby County Criminal Justice Complex.
