A mother was forced to flee her home with her children after her boyfriend became angry because she refused to have sex with him.

61-year-old Benjamin Blount of Louisiana is accused of trying to run over his girlfriend and her three children after she refused to sleep with him.

According to police, Blount made advances towards the woman at around 1:00 a.m., on Sunday, in an apartment in Baton Rouge.

The woman managed to flee with her 3 children. She ran to a nearby restaurant, where she waited for someone to pick her up.

Blount searched for the woman and found her in the parking lot of the restaurant. He tried to run her over twice with his truck, according to the police report.

The woman and her children hid behind a dumpster to avoid being hit by the vehicle.

Blount was arrested on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping, battery, and child endangerment.
