A Florida woman allegedly became "enraged" during a fight with her live-in boyfriend, squeezing his testicles so hard that they started to bleed.
Katie Lee Pitchford, 21, is facing charges of domestic battery after Indian Harbour Beach police were called to the home she shared with her boyfriend last week.
The victim, who has not been identified, told police his girlfriend had become “enraged” during a fight and began to hit him with a brush, according to The Miami Herald.
He said she continued to hit him with her fists and scratched him along the left side of his face before she allegedly “grabbed him by his balls and squeezed them until they were bleeding,” according to an arrest report obtained by the paper.
The vicious attack didn’t end there. The victim reported that Pitchford also grabbed him by the throat and began to choke him, before he was able to break away and call police, Florida Today reports.
When police arrived at the scene they found the victim bleeding from the face with a bruised eye.
Pitchford was arrested, but as she was being led into a patrol car she asked if she could talk with her boyfriend “because she wanted to say she was sorry,” the report said.
While Pitchford allegedly admitted to arguing with her boyfriend, she denied physically attacking him.
She was taken to the Brevard County Jail Complex, where she remained behind bars Monday.
A judge has ordered that she have no contact with the victim or go to his home, unless she is accompanied by police to get her belongings. Her next scheduled court appearance is at the end of the month.
At the time of her arrest, Pitchford was on felony probation for resisting an officer with violence, local station WESH reports.
