A Florida man who allegedly wished his girlfriend a "Happy bloody Valentine's Day" and threatened to cut off her head with a knife and choke her with a belt was arrested by police, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said on Monday.
Nathan Hemby, 33, of Key Largo was arrested on Sunday after his 50-year-old girlfriend dialed 911 after locking herself in the bathroom. She told officers he had been threatening her in recent days with a knife, a box cutter and a screwdriver.
According to the victim's testimony cited in the sheriff's office report, she said he held his hand over her mouth, put the knife to her throat and told her he was going to cut off her head and "grind up her body to sell for meat."
She said he had also threatened to choke her with leather belts hanging on the wall of their apartment and had taken a pair of her underwear, telling her he was going to "add it to his collection of the other girls he had to do this to."
The officers who responded to the call discovered her underwear tucked in the back of his shorts and the weapons and belts described were all found in the apartment.
