FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Authorities said they’re looking for a registered sex offender in Fayetteville who allegedly bit off his girlfriend’s ear.

Deputies told WTVD-TV that 31-year old Luther Paul Whittington is wanted on charges of maiming, first degree burglary, and assault on a female.

The suspect is accused of breaking into the victim’s home Friday night through her living room window.

Deputies said the victim and her daughters ran to hide in a bathroom when the suspect found them.

Whittington is accused of beating, kicking and punching the victim as her children watched and tried to help their mother.

Whittington is described as a black male black hair and brown eyes, standing 5’10” and weighing around 145 pounds. He wears his hair in long dreadlocks and has a tattoo on his right arm with the name “TIKA” printed on it.

Cumberland County deputies said he is believed to be driving a 1991 blue four-door Honda Accord.

The suspect became a registered sex offender after being convicted of indecent liberties with a minor in 2003, according to the N.C. sex offender registry.

Anyone with any information on the suspect can contact the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at (910) 323-1500.
