LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Police in Lincoln have arrested a man accused of kicking in a woman’s door and beating her so severely that it left her with multiple broken bones.

The Lincoln Journal Star says police called to the home around 6:20 a.m. Thursday found the 49-year-old woman in her driveway covered in blood and screaming in pain.

She told police that 31-year-old Austin Lightfeather had kicked in the door to her home and punched and kicked her until she lost consciousness.
