A Florida woman became furious during an argument with her boyfriend and in a fit of rage grabbed his testicles, ultimately squeezing them until they were bleeding.
21-year-old Katie Lee Pritchard of Indian Harbour Beach was arrested on June 4th after police were called by her boyfriend to the home she and him share, presumably as he wept and clutched his destroyed, leaking testicles. After police arrived they also reported that the man’s face was bruised and bloodied.
According to the man, Pritchard attacked him in the middle of the night as he was sleeping. He awoke to her squeezing the actual life out of his scrotum. She also hit him with a brush, scratched him, and strangled him to the point that he couldn’t breathe. The man told police he never hit back but did try to block her blows, and ultimately was able to get her off of him long enough to call the police.
Pritchard claims her boyfriend became jealous about her wanting to go on a date with another guy and then the fight escalated from verbal to… testicular decimation?
Domestic abuse is often put onto males, but its becoming far to prevalent with females also. As a society we have to speak out against this kind of violence toward anyone.
Katie violated her probation when she assaulted her boyfriend. Then she continued to hit him with her fists and then scratched him and drew blood.
“The victim also stated the defendant ‘grabbed him by his balls and squeezed them until they were bleeding,’” the Indian Harbour Beach Police Department’s police report on the incident read. Pitchford then grabbed her boyfriend by the throat and held him until he couldn’t breathe.
Pitchford told police that she argued with her boyfriend but said it hadn’t gotten physical. After police arrested her, she asked from the back of the patrol car to talk to her boyfriend. The police report said Pitchford told police that she wanted to tell her boyfriend she was sorry.
She was arrested and charged with domestic battery. Pitchford was also charged with violating her probation in connection with a 2017 incident in when she hit a law enforcement officer.
A Brevard County judge ordered Pitchford to have no contact with her boyfriend and said she couldn’t return to his home to get her belongings without being accompanied by police.
