A Rice Lake man is accused of severely beating his girlfriend after she accused him of cheating with another woman.
Trevor L. Davis, 29, was charged Thursday in Eau Claire County Court with felony charges of strangulation and suffocation, false imprisonment, aggravated battery and bail jumping, and a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.
A $1,000 cash bail was set for Davis, who returns to court at 2 p.m. Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.
As conditions of bail, Davis cannot drink alcohol or enter taverns.
According to the criminal complaint:
An Eau Claire police officer was sent to a reported domestic incident at 3:24 p.m. Wednesday at a Golf Road residence.
A woman had escaped to a neighbor’s apartment to call police.
The woman was visibly distraught and crying. She had bruises covering both her arms, a black eye and a mark on her throat. She was taken to an area hospital for treatment of her injuries.
The woman said Davis attacked her after she confronted him about cheating on her.
The attack occurred at Davis’ sister’s apartment.
The woman said Davis choked her with his hands and repeatedly kicked her head, side, back, arms and buttocks while she was on the ground.
The woman said she saw stars after Davis kicked her head.
Davis grabbed her mouth and face with his hand. His thumb was inside her mouth. The woman said Davis pulled so hard with his thumb she believed he was trying to rip her mouth apart.
Medical personnel noted the woman had bruises and scrapes covering her arms and hands, a black eye, a large red mark on her throat, a large bruise on her rib cage, numerous bruises on her legs and contusions inside her mouth.
The officer then spoke with Davis, who said the woman accused him of cheating but that nothing else happened.
When advised of the woman’s version of events, Davis said she choked him.
Davis is free on bond for pending felony cases in both Rusk and Barron counties.
If convicted of the felony charges, Davis could be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison.
