A former shoe salesman accused of biting off part of his ex-girlfriend’s big toe has been arrested again – this time for trying to chop it off with a cigar cutter.

Daniel Anaya, 27, of Santa Fe, has been arrested and charged with kidnapping, aggravated battery on a household member with great bodily harm, assault to commit a violent felony, aggravated stalking and aggravated residential burglary in connection to an attack police say happened Monday.

According to a criminal complaint, Aragon originally bit off a portion of his girlfriend’s big toe during an attack in February, when the two lived in Santa Fe.

She moved away from Santa Fe to get away from him. Then, on Monday, police say Anaya came to her house in Albuquerque and attacked her again.

This time, he held her down while he nearly severed her toe with what she believes was a cigar cutter.

The victim told police that Anaya used to be a shoe salesman at Dillard’s, but said he  doesn’t work there now.
