MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -

Two men from the Carolinas attacked their girlfriends with pizza in two separate domestic violence incidents in the last week, authorities say.

The first incident happened Wednesday in Fort Mill, S.C., where a man was charged with domestic violence after deputies say he assaulted his girlfriend with a pizza and hit her, the Smoking Gun website reported.

Deputies said that Jimmy Ray Poage threw a pizza at his 40-year-old girlfriend and also grabbed her neck and slammed her into a kitchen counter, according to the website.

The woman had pizza sauce splattered all over her while Poage, 47, did not have any food on him, York deputies said in a report the Smoking Gun obtained.

On Sunday, police in Wilkesboro, N.C., arrested Cody Sebastian Parsons, 25, after responding to a call at a home he shares with his 19-year-old girlfriend.

The incident began just after midnight when Parsons slipped on a wet floor and became upset with the teen, Wilkesboro Police said in a report from the crime news website.

While he was cursing at his teen girlfriend, Parsons hit her with pizza that he threw at her, police said.

At first, Parsons told police he didn't hit his girlfriend with the pizza. But, later he changed his story when police found "pizza sauce on the back of [the girlfriend's] right rib cage," according to the Smoking Gun.

Police said "there were pieces of pizza all over the living room floor as well as on the wall behind the front entrance door to the apartment."

Parsons was charged with misdemeanor assault on a female.
