Did the girlfriend press charges?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
All I know is that she gave the police his name and the police took her to the hospital to get stitches or that she filed a complaint or not I don't know
Expert:  Loren replied 9 months ago.

If charges were filed then he will probably have a warrant on file for his arrest.

However, if no charges were filed then there probably is not. If there is it may not be executed until he is stopped form something else.
