A 20-year-old man is accused of repeatedly pistol-whipping a woman in northeast Portland and then telling police he was going to attack her again once he got out of jail.

Keoni Young was arrested Oct. 18 and arraigned on charges of second-degree assault-domestic violence Tuesday.

Police responded to the 14900 block of Northeast Fremont Court on a report of a man pistol-whipping a woman.

According to court documents, officers arrived to find a woman with a considerable amount of blood on her head, ear and shirt.

A probable cause affidavit states the woman was arguing with Young about child care when she went into the garage to get her clothing.

Young then pulled out a small handgun, court documents state, and hit her with it twice in the left ear and twice on top of her head.

The woman told police she was in a relationship with Young for three months.

After the attack, Young said, "I'm such a bad person, I'm such a bad person," according to a probable cause affidavit.

The affidavit states Young told police he had been in an argument with the victim, but denied hitting her with a gun, saying instead that he hit her with either a lighter, a phone or a can of soup.

Officers did not locate the gun.

On the way to jail, Young stated "I'm beating that (expletive) when I get out of jail," according to court documents.

Young pleaded not guilty Tuesday and is due back in court Dec. 8. He remained in the Multnomah County Jail on Tuesday.
