    Sources told Boston 25 News 54-year-old Michael Comeau carried out the violent attack on his 49-year-old girlfriend.

    The unclothed and bloody victim ran to her neighbor’s house for help and to alert them that she believed the home she had escaped was on fire.

    “Her head was bashed in,” neighbor Debra Oblenes said. “She had a lot of gashes and blood on her face, head and leg.”

    Rescue crews encountered two potbelly pigs roaming the house.

    Firefighters said it took them a second to process what they were seeing before getting back to the business at hand.

    They were able to round up the animals after putting out the flames.

    He was taken, in handcuffs, to a different hospital than the victim.

    Both are expected to recover.

    Comeau was arrested and charged with arson of a dwelling, mayhem, attempted murder, assault and battery causing serious bodily injury, aggravated rape and violating a restraining order violation.
