According to family members, Megan Dalrymple, a former Newton resident has been missing since September after leaving her apartment with her boyfriend who allegedly assaulted her.
The boyfriend, Christopher Skorets, has since been apprehended by Virginia Beach Police and Dalrymple's family is worried about her safety as they have yet to hear from her.
During the altercation in which the 33-year-old was allegedly assaulted, Skorets reportedly stabbed her with a screwdriver, threatened to shoot her and her four kids, threw her seven cats out of a window, and abandoned her dog.
According to the New Jersey Herald, before Skorets fled the state, police filed charges against him, including assault and terroristic threats. In Virginia the 19-year-old racked up another 25 charges in 6 days, including assault, abduction by force, strangulation, and sodomy by force of a mentally incapable victim.
A woman who identified herself as Dalrymple's sister took to Facebook to ask for help finding Megan.
