Cumberland County detectives have obtained additional warrants for a registered sex offender accused of attacking a woman and biting off her ear while her two children looked on.

The suspect is identified as Luther Paul Whittington, Jr., 31, of Fayetteville. He is wanted on charges of maiming, first degree burglary and assault on a female.

Deputies said Whittington broke through a window in his girlfriend's living room while her two young daughters were with her. They tried to hide in a bathroom, but deputies say Whittington found them and beat the woman in front of her children.
