MOORHEAD (KFGO-AM) -- A Moorhead man is facing attempted murder, assault and false imprisonment charges for a brutal attack on his girlfriend. Prosecutors are asking that bond be set at a $1 million for 34-year old Michael Karau.
Karau is accused of stomping on the woman and beating her with a baseball bat last week during a drunken attack that lasted several hours. Prosecutors say Karau also tried to drown the woman in a bathtub.
Police were called after Karau passed out and the woman sent her brother a text message.
The woman suffered a broken nose, a broken tailbone, a partially torn off ear and bruising all over her body.
