Man Holds Knife to Babys Throat After Argument
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Apr 11, 2013 in Criminal Law
After being charged with two counts of aggravated kidnapping, and attempt of murder, a 22 year old man would hold a knife to his 8-month old babys throat and injure his girlfriend with a knife, after his girlfriend, and babys mother, argued about ending the relationship.
Once the mother finished arguing about ending the relationship, she began leaving the house when she heard the baby crying behind her. When the woman turned around, the man had a large hunting knife at the babys throat and ordered the mother back into the house.
While the woman was in the house, the man swung the knife at the woman cutting her finger. The woman then raised her arm to block another swing to her throat, while the knife cut her arm down to the bone.
After the incident, the man rushed her to the hospital and threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the incident. The woman required emergency care and surgery to the arm in order to repair the damages that had been done.
The man was found and arrested on April 4 and is now being charged with commission of domestic violence in the presence of a child and tampering with a witness, both third-degree felonies, along with failure to stop at an officers command.
