Okla. man found with part of woman's ear in pocket

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Police arresting a Tulsa man accused in the brutal beating of a woman found piece of an ear in his pocket.

The injured woman flagged down an officer early Friday outside an apartment complex. She told police that 24-year-old Joseph Sidney Hall Jr. had beaten and held her against her will.

A police report says the victim had bruises on her face, head, torso, arms and legs as well as bite marks, broken ribs and a collapsed lung. Officers discovered the piece of ear as they booked Hall into the Tulsa Jail.

The Tulsa World reports that Hall is held without bond on complaints of domestic assault and battery, kidnapping, maiming and obstruction. Jail records do not list an attorney for Hall.
