TAMPA - A pregnant woman bit off part of her boyfriend's finger during a violent confrontation at their Tampa home on Tuesday, according to Hillsborough County deputies.

The two got into an argument which turned physical shortly before 6:00 p.m. at an apartment on Hensel Lane.

According to a sheriff's statement, the boyfriend, 22-year-old Reginald Gefferie, armed himself with a knife and pointed it at 22-year-old Junie Dieujuste while in their bathroom.

The fight continued into the bedroom, where Gefferie blocked the door with a dresser.

"The defendant then grabbed the victim by the neck with one hand pushing her up against the wall and punching her in the face," according to the statement.

At that point, Dieujuste bit off the tip of Gefferie's middle finger on his right hand in self-defense.

Dieujuste was taken to Florida Hospital with a laceration to the forehead and contusions.

Gefferie and "the tip of his finger" were taken to Tampa General Hospital. He was later transported to the Orient Road Jail for booking.

He is charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant female and false imprisonment.

Deputies say Gefferie and Dieujuste have been together for five years and have a child in common.
