This is a very disturbing story. After restraining and beating his ex-girlfriend, an Evansville man has been arrested on charges of battery and strangulation. The alleged assailant, John Thomas Wells III, also poured liquid on her and cut her hair.

The suspect had already left the woman's residence when Vanderburgh County sheriff's deputies arrived.

Wells faces four counts of battery and one count of criminal confinement.
