A Sioux Falls man is behind bars after reportedly cutting off his ex-girlfriend’s nipples during a fight.
Police say Antonio Ledbetter, 45, was arguing with an ex-girlfriend at her home in the 4300 block of West 58th Street Tuesday evening. They say Ledbetter punched the 39-year-old victim in the face and slammed her head onto the ground several times. Police say he also put his forearm to her throat, restricting her airway, during the attack, and tried to gag her with a blanket. Police say he then cut off the victim’s nipples with a pair of scissors.
Authorities say Ledbetter then called 911 and the victim was taken to a hospital.
Ledbetter is charged with aggravated assault domestic. He is expected to appear in court this afternoon.
