Victim Is Torn

JULY 15--After slashing the tires on her boyfriend’s car, a Florida Woman struck the man and grabbed his scrotum “with such force that it removed the skin from the entirety of the victim’s right testicle,” police charge.

Cops allege that Donika Shaniece Mays, 29, battered the victim yesterday afternoon during a confrontation in their Tampa-area apartment. Mays, who has the victim’s name tattooed on her arm, was arrested on a felony battery charge.

According to an arrest affidavit, Mays and the victim had been arguing all morning before matters turned criminal. Mays and the man have been in a relationship for four years and have a two-year-old child.

The victim told police that he discovered that his vehicle’s tires had been slashed, adding that Mays admitted to the vandalism. While waiting for a tow truck to arrive, the affidavit reported, Mays resumed arguing with her boyfriend and began “striking the victim with open hands as he continuously backed away.”

At one point, Mays allegedly grabbed the clothed victim’s private parts. She “did so with such force that it removed the skin from the entirety of the victim’s right testicle,” wrote Officer Colin Bolton.

When asked by police about the dispute, Mays replied that she “had grabbed the victim’s testicles and had been in a physical altercation with him.”

Pictured above, Mays was arrested and booked into the county jail, where she is being held in lieu of $7650 bond. In addition to the battery count, Mays was also charged with initially providing cops with a fake name. She has been ordered by a judge to have no contact with the victim.

Mays is also facing a probation violation charge related to a prior battery case in a neighboring county. Mays was convicted of attacking a different man, according to court records. Her probation supervision in that matter was scheduled to expire in September.

Mays’s rap sheet includes convictions for theft, careless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, and possession of a controlled substance. (1 page)
