Police said officers were dispatched after a passerby found a 33-year-old woman crawling on the ground with severe head lacerations. Authorities said she was unable to provide information about what happened, but detectives later found evidence connecting Rogers to the assault.

Authorities say the victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, but is expected to survive.
