A woman brutally beaten by her boyfriend is speaking out for the first time about the violent attack.

Surveillance cameras captured a man kicking his girlfriend and knocking her unconscious. Seconds later he delivers another blow to her head.

The victim told only 10News she still can't believe what happened.

“It's really hurting me because I don't understand how someone you love so much could hurt you so much,” the victim said.

The woman says she and her boyfriend, Dorian Anguiano, had been having problems and were trying to fix their relationship.

They got into an argument outside a Chula Vista motel. She got out of the car and doesn't remember what happened next until she saw it on TV.

“I'm so broken-hearted about what he did, I'm so broken,” the woman said.

Police say Anguiano turned himself in the next day and posted bail shortly after.

The woman now has an emergency restraining order against the man, but says that hardly makes her feel safe.

“He can come hurt me or my family, I have my son, I have my sister,” she said.

She's also upset deputies did not let her know when Anguiano got out.

A spokesperson for the San Diego Sheriff's Department says victims of domestic violence must register on "Vinelink" to be notified when their attacker posts bail.

Chula Vista Police say the woman did not register.

She says she learned he was out from watching 10News.

“If it wasn't for you guys telling me, I wouldn't have known that he bailed out,” she said.

The woman suffered a broken nose and a concussion. She said she wanted others to hear her story so they don’t experience what she did.
