Police say a Florida woman beat her disabled live-in boyfriend in the face with a raw steak after he asked for a roll instead of the sliced bread she served him on Monday.
Elsie Egan, 53, was arrested on abusing a disabled adult charges after striking her boyfriend of 16 years, 49-year-old Peter Schabhuttl, with the raw meat described as weighing as much as 10-16oz.
According to reports, Egan says that after she served Schabhuttl the sliced bread and he refused to eat, he said he was going to smash it. She then “tapped him on the head once,” to stop him, she told the Ocala Star-Banner.
Schabhuttl, who is terminally ill with cancer and can only speak through an electronic voice device did not seek medical attention and suffered redness on his right cheek, according to police.
Egan says they were drinking alcohol when the quarrel began and claims “He’s lying. I never hit him,” according to reports. She was being held in lieu of $2,500 bail and ordered not to have any contact with the victim.
