Police say the man's girlfriend has bruising all over her body.

27-year-old Matthew Oday was arrested Wednesday for felony domestic assault. 

Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood said last Friday, employees at the Super Saver near 27th & Cornhusker witnessed a couple arguing.  Flood said the argument escalated prompting an employee to call police.  She said when officers arrived, the man took off.

Police said the woman had bruising all over her body in various stages of healing, and it appears she had been beaten almost everyday for the past four months.

Police located Oday Wednesday and arrested him.
