DALLAS – A Dallas man was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of cutting his ex-fiancee's neck with a sword when she broke up with him.
Darryl Edward Daniels, 47, who changed his Facebook status from "engaged" to "it's complicated" hours before the incident, was being held in jail Sunday after being booked on a felony charge of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury, The Dallas Morning News reported.
A police report said Daniels slammed his ex-fiancee's head into a door and punched her repeatedly when she told him she wanted to break up at his Dallas apartment on Saturday morning.
Daniels then held a sword to the woman's neck and said to her, "If you leave I will use this on you."
He then left several small wounds when he began cutting at her neck.
After a struggle, the woman managed to get away and ring 911. She did not seek medical attention for her injuries, the police report said.
