NORFOLK, Va. - A man was seriously injured after a domestic assault incident in the 5900 block of E. Virginia Beach Boulevard Thursday afternoon.

The call came in around 3:45 p.m.

Police say the man was taken to a local hospital for treatment for his injuries, which are said to be life-threatening.

A woman, identified as 34-year-old Portsmouth woman Bashira S. Tripp, was taken into custody at the scene.

A number of News 3 viewers made us aware of a Facebook Live video in which a man who is likely unconscious is seen lying on the ground; it looks as if he had been hit by a car. A woman is seen on video yelling at him and then later throwing a car bumper on him.

Another viewer sent us pictures of two vehicles being towed from the area.

At this time, police have not said whether this is the same incident.

Tripp was charged with aggravated assault and is being held in the Norfolk City Jail without bond.

There is no further information.
