(KMOV) – An Affton man faces charges after he allegedly hit and bit his girlfriend at a dollar store in Shrewsbury on Tuesday.
Kyle Anthony Johnson-Clark, 21, was charged Wednesday with second-degree domestic assault.
According to police, Johnson-Clark and his girlfriend were in the Nothing Over a Dollar Deals store in the 7000 block of Chippewa when the incident occurred.
Police responded to the scene and Johnson-Clark was identified by witnesses who saw the incident.
Authorities said they were then told by the victim she didn’t want to press charges because she was afraid Johnson-Clark would hurt her.
He was arrested and taken to the St. Louis County jail, where he remains on a $75,000 cash-only bail.
