AUSTIN, Texas (KWTX) - Police are looking for an unidentified woman who ran into an apartment complex office, bleeding from the head, and begged two employees to lock the door because her boyfriend was “coming to get me.”

When officers arrived at the scene, they spoke with the office employees who said, that moments after the distraught woman arrived and asked for help, an Hispanic male approached the door and began pounding on it and making threats.
