Key West Man Beats Woman for Failure to Clean Properly

Key West,Florida.- An unclean microwave appears to have been the catalyst in a Thursday morning argument involving a knife at a Petronia Street apartment.

A 48-year-old artist was arrested and charged with battery after allegedly punching a woman in the face and stomach because she didn't clean the microwave to his satisfaction, the woman told officers.

She said she grabbed a knife from the kitchen to protect herself, and officers noted she had bruises on her arms and neck and her eyes were swollen, reports state.

According to the Sheriff's Office Web site, the man also was arrested in 2005 on charges of battery, and in 2001 for theft and burglary charges.

I hope the police gave that woman a stern warning , about leaving that microwave dirty again! and cleaning it as if her life depended on it. It might !

why are they protecting his identity,if news of his abuse were revealed he might be shamed by his neighboors into stopping the beating of women or at least they could be vigilant and avoid her getting beaten to death.

Like I said , using my parents as an example I feel the authorities have very little incentive in protecting the victim(s).
