The Sun Sentinel reports that 21-year-old Katie Lee Pitchford is accused of hitting her boyfriend with a brush, scratching his face, and squeezing his privates parts after an argument over text messages. The alleged incident happened at a residence off of the 800 block of Veronica Court in Indian Harbour Beach on June 4.
“The victim also stated the defendant ‘grabbed him by his balls and squeezed them until they were bleeding,’” the police report read, according to the outlet.
The report also stated that the argument began when Pitchford wanted to go out on a date with an old friend. Her boyfriend apparently saw text messages between the pair and became jealous. The boyfriend claimed he confronted Pitchford verbally but never physically attacked her.
The boyfriend reportedly claimed he had helped Pitchford earlier in the evening by bandaging her knees when she fell at the beach and thought everything seemed normal, until he fell asleep that night and woke up to Pitchford’s hands around his scrotum, squeezing intensely.
She also proceeded to attack him, drawing blood from his facing and choking him until he couldn’t breathe, according to the police report. He managed to wrestle her away and call 911.
When authorities arrived, they found him with blood running down his face and bruising around his eye.
Pitchford was subsequently arrested for battery. She was also accused of violating her probation, stemming from a 2017 incident in which she resisted an officer with violence, according to the Miami Herald. Per court documents, Pitchford kicked a police officer on October 29, 2017, after they confronted her for stealing items out of a stranger’s car in Melbourne, Florida.
Pitchford remains behind bars without bail. She’s been ordered to stay away from the victim.
