Decatur man who bit woman on her breast gets jailed, police report


DECATUR — A Decatur man is jailed after police reports said he bit his girlfriend on the breast so severely she had to take herself to the hospital to seek treatment.

Detective Sgt. Chris Copeland with Decatur Police said patrol officers found out about the wound when they were called by the girlfriend again on Saturday for another unspecified domestic battery attack. Copeland said the biting had happened March 19 and the woman had gone to the hospital on March 21.

The boyfriend, 44, who has several prior domestic battery convictions, was arrested on new preliminary charges of domestic battery and inflicting domestic battery causing bodily harm.
