BETHLEHEM, Pa. - A Bethlehem woman told police that she ran to a pizza shop for help after her boyfriend allegedly bit her over and over again.
Jeffrey S. Tiger, of Linden Street, is facing simple assault, terroristic threats and harassment charges following the alleged attack on Monday. District Judge Roy Manwaring arraigned the 52-year-old, setting bail at $25,000 with a 10 percent cash option if approved by Northampton County pre-trial services.
Bethlehem police were dispatched to a Papa John's at 817 Linden St. to investigate an assault report. The victim told officers that she had been assaulted earlier in the day by her boyfriend, Tiger, according to court records.
Records do not specify what time the alleged attack occurred.
She told police that Tiger allegedly threatened to kill her and bit her several times, causing “extensive bruising,” according to records. Police observed bruising on her arms, face, chest, stomach and back.
The victim said she ran out of their nearby apartment and called police from the Papa John's.
Tiger failed to post bail and was sent to Northampton County Prison to await a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 26.
