A Pennsylvania man is accused of forcing his girlfriend to take an Uber to the hospital after he savagely beat the woman following the Super Bowl.
Nicholas Forman, 23, was charged with the first-degree murder of Sabrina Harooni after he dumped his injured girlfriend in an Uber, which drove the woman to a hospital. He was arrested on Thursday.
“This is what cheating liars get,” a man believed to be Forman allegedly shouted at the young woman in a cell phone video capturing the aftermath of the assault, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. “You hear me?”
Police said the man told the driver and hospital staff that his girlfriend had been jumped by a crew of women a night earlier, according to the Inquirer. However, detectives didn’t buy Forman's version of events.
They found patches of Harooni’s hair in front of the man’s house and inside his home as well as dirt-covered, bloody clothes. Authorities also seized cell phones from the couple, one of which reportedly shows a lifeless Harooni lying on a patch of grass, according to local station WCAU. There was also allegedly a video of Forman hurling insults at the woman's motionless body.
A different photo, taken around 2:30 a.m., appeared to then show the woman passed out face-down inside Forman’s residence, the local station reported.
By the time Harooni arrived at Pottstown Memorial Hospital on Feb. 2, she was “ice cold.” Medical experts confirmed she had likely been assaulted, displayed evidence of head trauma, lacked oxygen, and there was fluid in her lungs, according to the NBC affiliate.
The couple had been dating for approximately seven months.
The couple allegedly got into a backseat argument earlier in the evening while taking another Uber home from watching the Super Bowl at a pub in Oaks, Pennsylvania, according to court documents obtained by the Inquirer. The dispute arose after Harooni allegedly made a reference to receiving a text message from a past romantic partner. The mention irked Forman, who became increasingly agitated on the ride, the Uber driver later told law enforcement.
“You’re scaring me,” Harooni told Forman, the driver claimed.
Forman then blocked Harooni from entering his home, according to the driver, yelling, “Give me the f--king phone."
The Uber driver said he departed from the residence when he couldn't hear the couple yelling anymore.
Following the fatal beating, Forman allegedly took a shower and attended a court appearance related to felony drug charges and the sale of cocaine, according to WPVI-TV.
"And then after the court hearing where all charges were held, only then does he take her to the hospital," Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele told the ABC affiliate.
Forman is not eligible for bail.
