Former Shoe Salesman, Toe-Biter Jailed For Trying to Cut Off Ex-Girlfriend's Toe

This person ↑↑↑ is not to come anywhere near your foot, ladies. The ex-girlfriend of 27-year-old Daniel Anaya -- a former shoe salesman -- says she broke up with him after four years of dating and got a restraining order against him after he bit off off the toenail of her right big toe last November. Then last February, he was was arrested when he bit enough flesh off the woman’s other big toe to expose bone. (She said he came to her home in February -- after they broke up, mind you -- and asked to smell her feet before shoving her against a wall, causing her to fall to the floor. Then he bit her toe.) Then he was arrested on Monday for...
On Monday, according to an officer’s arrest warrant affidavit, Anaya’s ex-girlfriend was in a Lori Place NE apartment in Albuquerque early in the afternoon. She told police she’d moved from Santa Fe to live with a relative to get away from Anaya. She said she’d made sure she hadn’t documented her address on any paperwork. The woman told police that when she returned home from work, she left a door unlocked for her children returning home from school. She said she heard the front door open and she saw Anaya standing inside. The woman told him to leave and that he was not allowed to be near her under the restraining order. But Anaya responded, “I know, but you (expletive) up my life.” She tried to run out the front door, but Anaya closed it and told her she couldn’t leave, the woman told police. She tried to call 911, but Anaya grabbed her cell phone and threw it on the floor. She then tried to run out the back door but had trouble opening it. Anaya punched her arm and she let go of the door handle, and Anaya locked the door. The woman said she was “screaming the entire time, knowing what he was going to do to her.” Anaya pushed her down and straddled her, facing her feet. He removed her right shoe and sock and put her right big toe in his mouth and began biting. He then took out what Santa Fe Police spokeswoman Celina Westervelt said was a cigar cutter, an oval-shaped device which has a blade in the center used to cut the tips off cigars. Anaya slid the cutter over her toe and started to apply pressure to the toe, and the woman was afraid he would cut her toe off. She grabbed a fork from a coffee table and stabbed Anaya repeatedly in the back of the neck and upper back, but the stabbing “had no effect.” She grabbed Anaya’s face and tried to scratch or gouge his eyes. At this point, he stopped attacking her and told her several times, “You ruined my life.” The woman got away and ran from her apartment and used a neighbor’s phone to call for help.

Daniel remains jailed on a $100,000 cash-only arrest warrant charging him with kidnapping, aggravated battery on a household member causing great bodily harm, assault with intent to commit a violent felony, aggravated stalking and aggravated burglary. Surprisingly, the charges against him in February were dismissed, but will probably be refiled -- given his current arrest.
