Things are really happening ooh… A man identified as Tony Ledbetter from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, has been arrested after he allegedly cut off his 39-year-old pregnant girlfriend’s nipples with a pair of scissors. He then slammed her head to the ground and tried to silence her screams by shoving a blanket in to her mouth.
According to Keloland, the woman who has not been named, managed to escape and ask for help.
Sioux Falls Public Information Officer Sam Clemens described the case as ‘disturbing’.
‘He ended up punching her in the face, slamming her head on the ground several times.
‘She was yelling and screaming for him to get off of her. He then took his forearm and put it to her throat, basically restricting her air.
‘The really disturbing part is when he went and grabbed some scissors and sat on top of her and used those scissors to cut off her nipples.’
Ledbetter, whose bond has been set at $250,000, called 911 himself to report the incident.
Tony Ledbetter is facing eight charges of aggravated assault.
