That was the description reported by the stranger who found an unnamed woman stumbling along side a road in Jacksonville, Florida.
The woman had been held captive in a storage unit where she was beaten. She managed to escape when her captor fell asleep.
Authorities say the woman was beaten so badly she will likely be blind for life.
Arrested is Haywood West, 38. He is charged with felony battery causing great bodily harm, permanent disability or disfigurement, and false imprisonment.
From our source we read:
"It was not like my mother was laying there. It was like something off TV or something," Mandy said. "It wasn't like her at all. Her face was basically mangled and beaten in."
Mandy and Melissa said their mom and West were friends, but they said she had no clue what she was walking into.
"She made a comment to me a couple times that she wished they would have just killed her. That's how bad it was," Melissa said.
Mandy and Melissa said there was another person involved, but no other arrests have been made yet.
