Editor's note: This story has been corrected. The story originally incorrectly described a burglary associated with this incident.
A man who reportedly assaulted his girlfriend was pistol-whipped across the forehead by the girlfriend’s father and beaten up by two more suspects in retaliation last month, police said.
The boyfriend—who was attacked in the 3700 block of Hawkstone Lane—received several stitches on his forehead, ear and on the back of his head, the St. Louis County Police Department’s South County Precinct said. He was also treated for abrasions on his legs.
The girlfriend was beaten with an unknown object, according to the weekly police blotter. The report did not reveal more details about the assault.
