Beverly martial arts teacher held in attacks on girlfriend


In December, she told Rocheville, she was beaten so severely that both of her eyes swelled shut.

During another beating, her cheek was split; Louf later punched her and caused all of the stitches to break, she said.

Louf allegedly stabbed her ears with scissors, and delivered “body shots” to her as she washed dishes, sending her into a cabinet. He allegedly also put her into chokeholds until she passed out.

And she told police that Louf had broken and then tried to “reset” her nose multiple times.

When she bled, she said, Louf would force her to clean up her blood and beat her again.

As Shaheen read details from the police report, onlookers in the courtroom who had no connection to the case could be heard gasping.

Louf will remain in custody at least through today’s hearing.
