A brave student has won a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend after he beat her so badly that she didn't recognise herself in the mirror.
The sick yob – known only as BR – was accused of punching and kicking Bernarda Noboa, 21, at her home in Larroque, Argentina.
He was arrested on suspicion of assault after Bernarda bravely posted her beaten face on social media.
She also uploaded a snap of him stamping his foot in her face as she slept.
Bernarda claims her former partner's jealous rages started in October 2018 after she enrolled in a university in another city.
She said: “I came back in 2019 because he did not like me travelling.
“One night we were coming home from a nightclub when he suddenly bit me and ran away.
"He told me the next day that he did not remember anything. I believed him because we had drunk a lot.”
Noboa said: “There was a point in which I believed I would not be able to overcome what was happening to me, and the only solution was death.
"I look at myself in the mirror and could not recognise myself.
“My parents tried to file a complaint against him, but they were told nothing could be done if I did not report it myself.”
Reports said that the regional Attorney General’s Office has launched an investigation to determine if the case will go to court.
