A South Bend man is behind bars Thursday after beating his sister Wednesday night.
Claytus Ball was arrested and put in jail for one count of aggravated battery.
It happened around 9:50 p.m. in the 700 block of South Brookfield Street on the city's southwest side. Police arrived to find Ball's sister lying on the ground covered in blood.
They say the siblings started fighting over finances, and that is when Ball started hitting his sister with several objects, including his fists.
Ball has been arrested before for stealing, break-ins and well as drug possession.
