A jury has found an Akron man guilty of a vicious assault.

Hermaine D. Powell, 38, was found guilty of aggravated burglary, felonious assault and disrupting public services. 

On April 6, Powell was waiting for a female acquaintance when she arrived home. He dragged the woman from her car by her hair and hit, punched and kicked her. Powell then dragged the woman into her apartment, where he continued to beat her and ripped out a large chunk of her hair. The woman called 911, but Powell grabbed the phone and hung up.

When police arrived, Powell ran from the apartment. He was captured attempting to climb a fence.

No sentencing date has been set.
