A Holyoke police officer is being held without the right to bail after a dangerousness hearing for assault and battery charges brought by his wife.
"He grabbed me by the hair, he held me on the floor bashing my face against it," said Loumag Alicea's wife. "Then he kicked me a bunch of times."
The victim said that an incident with her husband a little more than a week ago left her with several injuries including a black and blue eye and a bruised lip.
"I'm scared of him," said the victim.
She said there have been multiple occasions of abuse throughout their marriage.
But, the defense tells a different story.
Alicea said that he was trying to get his wife off of him when he elbowed her by mistake. But, he said that he never intentionally beat or hurt his wife in any way.
The defense told the court that his wife tells chronic lies. They said she has had multiple affairs and didn't tell her husband for years that she had AIDS.
The judge said that although the victim's credibility was seriously compromised by Monday's testimony the only way to ensure her safety for the time being is to keep Alicea behind bars. He is due back in court on Oct. 30.
