STAFFORD, VA (WWBT) - Stafford County deputies have made an arrest following a domestic dispute and interstate pursuit.

A report of a domestic dispute at a residence on Regina Lane was made to Deputy Nathan Potter on Thursday. The victim reported that her and her boyfriend had several verbal and physical altercations throughout the day.

The victim identified her boyfriend as 19-year-old Steven Ramos, of Fredericksburg.
