ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - Police have arrested an Alexandria man after he got into a fight with his girlfriend and tried to bite her nose off.
Forty-six-year-old Bernard Radford was arrested Thursday and booked with second-degree battery.
Police say Radford and his girlfriend got into an argument at Radford's home. The girlfriend told police that Radford "went crazy" and started hitting her and then bit her on the nose, almost biting it off.
Police said the woman had several cuts to the left side of her face, had a large cut on her nose and was bleeding. They noted that Radford had blood stains on his pants and around his mouth.
The woman was treated for her injuries, and Radford was booked into the Rapides Parish Jail.
