Man arrested in Italy after biting off ex-wife's ear

Vimercate, September 16 - A 32-year-old man was arrested Monday after holding his ex-wife at knifepoint and biting off one of her ears. The woman, a 30-year-old Milan native, was taken to hospital in the northern city of Monza and underwent surgery. Her father raised the alarm following the attack by the man, who is originally from Cape Verde. In a separate case, a 30-year-old man was forcibly ejected from his home after neighbours called police to report that he was beating his partner, allegedly after months of abuse in front of the couple's 10-month-old daughter. It is one of the first times new legislation to combat violence against women, which makes it possible for partners to be barred from the family home in emergency cases of abuse even without an order from a judge, has been applied.
