A woman was charged with domestic battery after a fight with her girlfriend prompted a dildo attack, according to the St. Petersburg Police Department. Annette Kielhurn, 57, was arguing with her girlfriend over who owned a dress on July 14 as her girlfriend attempted to move out of their shared home. Law enforcement says they arrived at their home because of a call from Kielhurn’s girlfriend, asking for police to stand by while she moved out her belongings. According to police, Kielhurn grabbed her girlfriend’s arm and pulled the dress out of her hand, saying it belonged to her. An officer asked Kielhurn not to touch her girlfriend again, and to explain to her what she wanted to keep. Shortly after Kielhurn returned to the girlfriend and shoved a dildo in her face right in front of the standing officer, police said. Kielhurn grabbed her girlfriends arm once more, leading to her arrest.
