West Bloomfield Township police arrested a 50-year-old male resident last week for domestic assault after he allegedly assaulted his wife.
Officers were dispatched to the corner of Greer and Lockhaven roads for a 48-year-old woman who allegedly was a victim in the early morning hours of Friday, Oct. 14.
The victim told police that her husband was drinking. She said they had gotten into an argument and that eventually he grabbed her by the shirt, yanked her off the couch and threw her to the ground.
She then claimed that she kicked at him before he dragged her across the room by her feet, picked her up and slammed her to the ground.
He then allegedly grabbed her by the shirt and slammed her to the ground again.
The victim then got away, but the couple argued some more. As she went to leave through the garage, the suspect allegedly grabbed her and pulled her back into the house and dragged her to the living room.
He then allegedly tried to get her shirt off and took her into the kitchen and grabbed a steak knife before cutting at her shirt.
The victim escaped, got into her car and called police.
When officers went to the residence, there was no answer. An officer kept watch there until 10 a.m. that same day, when the suspect finally arrived.
The suspect was arrested for alleged domestic assault. He was later arraigned and posted a bond of $5,000.
