Police say a Sioux Falls man poured bleach on his girlfriend's head and then drank a quantity of bleach, and now he is charged with assault.

Police were called around 10pm Thursday to an apartment at 2445 West Madison Street after a neighbor reported hearing yelling and screaming.

Officer Sam Clemens says when police entered the apartment, they found a 28-year-old woman in the shower, and she told them her boyfriend had poured bleach on her head:

Clemens says as police were leaving the apartment they saw the boyfriend, (identified as 27-year-old Safarinu Okuwe) unresponsive and lying on a snowbank wearing only a pair of shorts.

Clemens says the boyfriend was treated at a hospital for ingesting bleach. He is charged with domestic aggravated assault.
