A man was ordered held without bail pending a Thursday dangerousness hearing at his arraignment on charges he punched a woman repeatedly in the face until she fell unconscious, fell asleep himself, then, when he woke, used a razor blade to slice the bruises around her eyes, allegedly to reduce the swelling, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office - which says he was the one who called 911.

Ismail Mohamed, 40, of Charlestown, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery causing serious bodily injury, mayhem, and kidnapping.

According to the DA's office, police responded to the basement of a two-family house at 87 Cambridge St. on a report of an assault around 5:50 a.m. on Monday.

Officers located the suspect, later identified as Mohamed, sitting on a bed while the female victim was sitting on the floor, bleeding from her face. A large amount of blood was visible on a blanket and pillow also found on the floor. The victim appeared disoriented and unable to open her eyes. Officers observed severe bruising and swelling around both eyes, mouth and cheeks and multiple cuts above and beneath her eyelids. She was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Mohamed told police he was with the victim in the apartment when a fight ensued. He then fell asleep and when he woke up, discovered the victim to be suffering from the injuries. He then admitted to cutting the victim’s face to help reduce the swelling around her eyes.

Both Mohamed and the victim denied any domestic relationship. According to phone records, Mohamed was the 911 caller.

I wonder what drug causes this kind of behavior? Could be alcohol but I doubt it.

I'm not an expert in the field, all I have is school of hard knocks knowledge from dealing with addicted people. I don't think any drug "causes" this kind of behavior, but if you want to say it does, alcohol is certainly a strong candidate.
