An Aurora man accused of beating his girlfriend and shooting the back of her vehicle last month in the west suburb was ordered held on $500,000 bail Monday.

Elyas Taha, 29, is charged with felony counts of armed violence, aggravated discharge of a firearm and aggravated domestic battery in the March 25 incident, the DuPage County state’s attorney’s office said in a statement.

Taha and his girlfriend were arguing that day about 9 a.m. in the 2600 block of Country Oaks Court when he allegedly hit her several times and choked her, prosecutors said.

After Taha released her, he allegedly fired two shots into the driver’s side taillight of her car and one into the back bumper, prosecutors said. She was standing next to the driver’s side of the car while he allegedly opened fire.

Taha fled on foot, and police found him still in the neighborhood 20 minutes later and took him into custody, police said.

He was scheduled to appear back in court May 13.
