Smith and Etute reportedly met on Tinder, but Etute allegedly believed he matched with a woman named Angie, not Smith.
According to The Roanoke Times, Etute went to Smith's apartment on April 10 for oral sex. Etute reportedly returned to the apartment on May 31 to engage in other sexual activity when he discovered "Angie" was actually Smith.
The Roanoke Times reports Etute told Blacksburg Police officers he punched Smith in the face five times and then "stomped" on him. Etute allegedly heard "bubbling and gurgling" when he left Smith's apartment, but did not call police.
In court last week, Etute apologized for his actions and said he was "truly sorry."
A Montgomery County judge granted Etute a $75,000 bond, which stipulates Etute must remain under house arrest and keep on an electronic monitor, WJZY-TV reports.
