CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) - A southwest Idaho man police say bit a woman’s face multiple times has been charged with aggravated battery.

Caldwell police arrested 23-year-old Jose Jamie Ruiz of Caldwell at about 3 p.m. on Friday after responding to a disturbance.

Police say Ruiz said the woman attacked him and his only means of defense was to bite because of a disability that causes him to have little strength in his arms.

Police say the woman had a bite mark on her arm, a swollen eye and torn skin on her eyelid and cheek.

The woman told police she told Ruiz to leave after he cursed at her.

Family members took the woman to a medical facility for treatment.

Ruiz is being held in the Canyon County Jail on $100,000 bond.
