“He didn’t like hitting me on the face,” she said. “He didn’t like hitting me with his face.”
“Did he slap your face or what?” Asked the officer.
“He likes, grabbed me with his nails, and I think that’s why it’s visible, I definitely have a cut here,” she said, rubbing her cheeks. “I can feel it, it burns when I touch it.”
