SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A former New Mexico shoe salesman accused of trying to cut off his ex-girlfriend's big toe with a cigar cutter has been ordered held on $100,000 cash bail.

Daniel Anaya was ordered held Tuesday after prosecutors argued he was an extreme danger to his victim.

The 27-year-old was arrested in Santa Fe earlier this month after his ex-girlfriend reported that he attacked her after tracking her down at her new home earlier that day in Albuquerque. She was able to fight back with a metal fork and escape.

Authorities say he attacked his ex-girlfriend three times since November, trying to bite or remove her big toes in the attacks.
