A successful blogger and mum of one from Brasil needed more than 100 stiches after she was bitten and beaten by her jealous ex-boyfriend when he spotted her on the beach in a bikini.
The victim, identified as Daiana Matos, aged 23, from the city of Rio de Janeiro, in Brasil, was attacked by her stalker ex boyfriend after he spotted her wearing a bikini, while she was at the beach with her daughter.
Matos who reportedly went through severe physical and emotional abuse while dating him, reportedly received a total of 110 stiches, out of which about a 100 on her face and 10 more above her chest.
But following the incident Matos decided to break the silence and shared a couple of social media posts on her Instagram profile where she explained what happened on Sunday, 5th February 2023.
She said: “His attitudes started to worry me when he started chasing after me, standing at my gate in the morning waiting to see if I came from somewhere, when he called me to find out where I was all the time and I decided to split up.”
Unable to face the separation, the jilted man then burst out of rage when he saw her wearing a bikini one day while the blogger was sunbathing with her daughter on the beach.
She then recalled the incident and said: “He wouldn’t let go of my arms and I was forced to bite him, [and] when I bit him, he returned the bite much harder [as he was wearing] braces.”
With her face severely bleeding, the 23-year-old woman then managed to escape the scene though the help of a friend after which the she and her daughter hid behind a car.
But it wasn’t long before the man found them and threw a bottle at Daiana out of anger, before punching her in the face multiple times.
He then ran away, while Daiana was immediately transferred to Nossa Senhora do Carmo Hospital, in the neighbourhood of Campo Grande.
The blogger said: “The nightmare started there: They applied anesthesia to my whole face, I felt each bite, I felt the doctor sew up my whole face, and without knowing how serious it was, I asked if it was 30 stitches.
“She informed me that I took 50 through the muscle and 50 outside the muscle, plus 10 above the chest.
“I felt being stitched and that pain from the anesthesia was horrible.”
In a series of Instagram stories on Thursday (23rd February) Daiana urged authorities to investigate the case and revealed that her former partner walks free.
She said: “A lot of people [are] asking if he is under arrest, no, he is not under arrest.
“When the police arrived at the scene, he had already left with the help of his friends, if he was there, he would have been arrested, but he ran away.”
Daiana then concluded: “I never want to live that again, never again do I accept to go through it!! Do not accept a report, CALL 180.”
