A Chattanooga man was arrested after police said he hitchhiked a ride with a woman then started attacking her.
According to police, the woman was leaving a party in East Chattanooga on Aug. 1, when Shungthun Martez "Smurf" Fugh, 29, asked her for a ride.
The woman told police they were near an alley on East 18th Street when the man started going through her belongings inside the car.
When she asked him to stop, she said he started arguing with her. She said when he hit her in the face, she hit him back.
At this point, she said they both got out of the vehicle. She told police he immediately punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground.
She said Fugh ran away. The woman sustained a fractured jaw and three of her teeth were knocked out. Her injuries required surgery.
Fugh was arrested two weeks later on warrants. He was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and his bond was set at $25,000.
