One of Tulsa's Most Wanted was arrested on Friday.

Charles Edward Yahola, 24, was sought for felony domestic assault and battery for reportedly beating a former girlfriend over the head with a pair of vice grips.

Yahola was Tulsa's Most Wanted criminal for the week of May 20 after he failed to appear in court to face charges in the case.

Court records say, in January, Yahola began pushing the woman, but she ran to a nearby store, then to another apartment complex while Yahola followed her in a vehicle, documents say.

She went inside a stranger's apartment seeking safety, but Yahola followed her inside and began hitting her on the head with vice grips. He dragged her out of the apartment and slammed her body to the ground outside, according to an affidavit.

"The victim stated that, while she was on the ground, [Yahola] kicked and punched her face with his closed fist," court records state.

Yahola was booked into the Tulsa County jail about 9:30 p.m. on Friday and is being held in lieu of more than $135,000.

He also had a bench warrant out for his arrest stemming from failure to appear in court for a separate 2012 case for misdemeanor domestic assault and battery.

Yahola previously has been convicted of public drunk, joyriding, drug possession and breaking and entering.
