Aggravated domestic battery — A 29-year-old Normal man is in McLean County jail, accused of aggravated domestic battery against his live-in girlfriend early Saturday morning.
Police were called to the 200 block of Lindell Drive in Normal for a report of a domestic battery after a neighbor called police to report two people were in a hallway arguing. Court documents indicate officers found blood and human hair in the hallway and a female victim with visible bruises, swelling and cuts on her face.

Court documents indicated the suspect, Nathan Price, punched the woman in the face with a closed fist and struck her in the head with a can. Prosecutors said the victim grabbed a kitchen steak knife and attempted to defend herself, but Price took it away from her. He is also accused of choking her. Police indicated the blood found in the hallway was consistent with bloody knuckles on the suspect.
The woman was transported to the hospital but her condition was not available.
Prosecutors requested a bond of $250,000, but the judge held Price over on no bond, pursuant to an order for a risk assessment. A bond review date is set for Thursday. Price is due to be arraigned on Jan. 17.
