Woman recounts domestic violence incident

WARREN – It’s been more than 16 months since the former boyfriend of a Girard woman beat her so badly that she had to have facial reconstructive surgery.

Carly Diamond, 32, said she had a child with the offender more than four years ago and the two spent about 10 years in a relationship. She said she filed a protection order against him when his behavior became violent.

The order was granted, but it didn’t stop Ricco Acevedo, 38, from coming to her home June 4, 2015, on Howard Street in Girard, demanding to see their son, while a relative watched the child as Diamond prepared for an interview, she said.

When she told him ‘no,’ and that she would call police to report the violation if he didn’t leave, she said “he lost it.”
