ITHACA (WENY) -- An Ithaca woman was hurt Saturday night after being dragged by a car.
     According to the Ithaca Police Department, it happened around 5:00PM when officers responded to a 911 hang up call, made from a business in the 700 block of Meadow Street.
     When they arrived they found a woman injured and lying on the ground in the middle of the parking lot. She said she was dragged by a car driven by Akiel Patrick after a fight.
     Patrick ran away from the scene but was later found in the Town of Ithaca and arrested on two counts of criminal contempt. He's now in Tompkins County Jail and will appear in Ithaca City Court on April 30th, 2014.
