Police say a woman was severely beaten by a man who followed her into her upscale condo and started attacking her Sunday night.

According to police reports, the suspect, Dean Gooding, followed the woman onto an elevator and got off on her floor.

Police said she stopped at a door, then Gooding allegedly grabbed a box with some heavy cable equipment in it and started beating the woman, punching her in the face and slamming her head on the wall and floor.

Neighbors Peyton and Matthew Snodgrass heard what was going on and came outside to help.

The brothers say they pulled the victim inside their condo and called police after fighting off Gooding.

Gooding has been charged with several counts of assault and vandalism.
