A Queen Creek-area man was arrested Saturday after his live-in girlfriend was attacked with scissors and pushed off a balcony, authorities said.
Pinal County sheriff's deputies arrested Tracey S. Mao, 38, after a domestic violence call near Hunt Highway and Gary Road.
Deputies said Mao became angry with his girlfriend after she came home late on Friday night. According to a police report, he grabbed a pair of scissors and cut chunks of her hair down to the scalp, saying, "Who will want you with no hair?"
Deputies said Mao also called out: "I am going to end it, I'm going to end this now."
The report said the victim ran out to the balcony and yelled for help, and Mao followed her, grabbed her legs and pushed her over the balcony.
Authorities said the victim tried to run away but couldn't because the fall injured her hip. Mao picked her up and carried her into the house, refusing to take her to the hospital, the report said.
Mao was booked on suspicion of aggravated assault, assault with intent, fighting and disruptive behavior.
