WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A man faces two felonies after allegedly beating his girlfriend with a Shake Weight dumbbell. 19-year-old Jonathan T. Noe is charged with Battery and Strangulation, both felonies. He is also charged with Invasion of Privacy.
Court documents state Noe knowingly and intentionally violated a protective order to keep him from abusing, harassing, or disturbing the peace of the victim, his girlfriend. The order was filed in Porter County in June.
The victim told police Noe, her boyfriend, was unhappy with her and began kicking her and beating her until she was knocked unconscious after he attended a party in Willowbrook Apartments in West Lafayette.
When police arrived at the apartment complex, they said the woman's eyes were swollen shut and her mouth was so swollen she could hardly speak. Police noted in court documents four of her teeth were knocked loose and pushed back toward her throat.
Medical records in the court documents reveal the victim suffered a hematoma to her head, a fracture to her right eye socket, a broken nose, a blowout fracture on her face, a concussion and multiple bruises.
