A 37-year-old man, from Nordfjordeid, Norway, remains in police custody today.
Assault with a dildo.
The 28-year-old victim, his former girlfriend, remains in the hospital after suffering a concussion, two broken fingers and several cuts.
The woman told police she feared for her life during the assault.
The defendant testified that his only weapon was a dildo and claimed he was sorry for his actions. He also tried to explain away the event.
"It lasted 10 to 15 minutes, max," he told the court. "I didn't hit her with anything other than a dildo."
He intimated the woman may have had bruises from before the assault.
"She doesn't tolerate much because of anorexia," he said, adding that he was sorry "for what happened" and demanding he be released.
He was instead ordered held for another four weeks.
