The 27-year-old victim was transported to an area hospital and treated for injuries that were not life-threatening. The suspect was ultimately arrested and charged with family violence aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

“When it comes to family issues, we know that tensions and emotions run high and often times people act and do thing they wouldn’t normally do,” Mullen said. “In cases where things are getting heated it’s always best to separate yourself from the parties involved and the situation.
