Deputies say a 33-year-old woman suffered multiple fractures after her husband struck her in the head with a hammer.
According to the sheriff's office, Dawn Young told deputies she woke up covered in blood with her husband, Christopher, standing over her.
Young, who was arrested this week by Lakeland police, admitted to striking her with a hammer. He now faces attempted murder charges.
Deputies also say that after Dawn Young woke up, Christopher Young stole her cell phone so she couldn't call for help.
She drove herself to South Florida Baptist Hospital in Plant City and was transferred to St. Joseph's, where she's being treated.
Christopher Young, 44, was booked in the Polk County Jail.
