The victim, who is the mother of one of Wilson's children, left his home Tuesday morning with a letter he had written, court documents state.

She thought the letter was hers, but it was actually for another woman, who also is a mother to one of his children, police said.

The victim went to Wilson's home, and the two argued, according to court documents.

Police said Wilson threw the woman to the ground and placed his knee on her spine, then hit her in the face, chest and arms.

He also forced her face into the floorboards multiple times, charging documents allege.

When officers arrived, they found she had a large contusion and major swelling on the right side of her forehead, according to authorities. She also had swelling and redness on her face, chest and arms, as well as a laceration on her nose, police said.

She was taken to York Hospital by ambulance for treatment of her injuries.

Wilson was arraigned on the charges that night. He was sent to York County Prison on $15,000 bail. 

He did not have an attorney listed as of Friday.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 6 at District Judge Ronald Haskell Jr.'s office.
