A Tulsa man is being held in lieu of $50,500 bond after police found part of an ear in his pocket. Joseph Sidney Hall Jr., 24, was booked Friday morning on complaints of domestic assault and battery, kidnapping, maiming and obstructing an officer.

Police say the mother of Hall's son contacted them after she escaped from the Braden Creek Apartments where she said she was being held against her will. The victim had been severely assaulted and had contusions to her face, head, torso, arms and legs, according to a police report.

The woman also had several bite marks on her body, broken ribs and a collapsed lung. Part of her right ear had been cut or torn off, the arresting officer states.

Police went to Hall's apartment in the 4800 block of South Braden Avenue where they took him into custody. Officers say they found blood stains and clumps of hair consistent with the victim's.

When they booked Joseph Hall into the Tulsa County Jail, police say they found the missing part of the victim's ear in his pocket.

Hall has a tattoo that says "misunderstood," police noted in their report.
