To expand on joojaa's answer...

Right-Click or CTRL + Click on your text and Create Outlines

Delete the paths that you no longer want


For future reference, this site works more as an "I've tried _____ and I'm having trouble with _____" kind of site, rather than a "Someone show me how to _____" site.
