Action by ER staff leads to charges

Daily News, June 24, 2011
Hospital staff at The Medical Center in Bowling Green, KY separated a man from the woman he is accused of raping and contacted police. "It doesn't surprise me," Warren County Commonwealth's Attorney Chris Cohron said about emergency room staff. "They are always vigilant, especially dealing with victims' issues, and they are always an important part in many of our cases." Darryl A. Galloway, 34, is charged with two counts of first-degree rape, first-degree unlawful imprisonment, attempted first-degree sodomy and fourth-degree assault/domestic violence, according to Warren Circuit Court records. The Bowling Green Police Department was called to the hospital Sunday after Galloway brought the woman he is accused of assaulting to the hospital on the condition that she tell medical staff she was robbed and beaten. Instead, the woman wrote a note on her admitting papers that said "get him away from me please," according to police records. Emergency room staff then took the woman to a room and called police. "Law enforcement and the prosecutorial community has always enjoyed an excellent working relationship with The Medical Center," Cohron said.
