Young's article on nydailynews.com said, "The extremely graphic video was published by TMZ on Wednesday night. Stacy left Florida after cops were called and is now on the run, Oakland, Fla., police say. In a video published Thursday, the woman said “I don’t know why his friends are hiding him.”

The NY Daily News reporter continued "Stacy’s ex-girlfriend filed for a restraining order against him on Monday, citing the attack, according to TMZ. “He punched me several times in the head! I begged him to stop because the baby was on the couch just a few feet from where he punched me,” she wrote, describing the events seen in the video. The woman apparently avoided any major injuries from the attack."
