Washington: A 45-year-old man from South Dakota is facing multiple charges of aggravated assault, and has been jailed after allegedly beating his pregnant ex-girlfriend and cutting off her nipples using scissors in a shocking revenge attack.
According to reports in the Mirror, the man, Tony Ledbetter, went over to his ex-girlfriend’s house in Sioux Falls area to have a talk with her, but lead way to a heated argument between the estranged couple.
Things soon spiralled out of control, prompting Ledbetter to punch his 35-year-old girlfriend on her face, and slamming her on the ground.
He also allegedly thrust his forearm against her neck, and tried to choke her with a blanket, before he fetched a pair of scissors and cut off his victim’s nipples.
