WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A man has been arrested after Wichita police say he tried to fight officers after assaulting a woman and her 10-year-old daughter.
The Wichita Eagle reports a 27-year-old man was arrested Tuesday evening. Wichita police Lt. James Espinoza said Wednesday that officers were flagged down Tuesday by a 42-year-old woman who reported the suspect violated a protection from abuse order.
Espinoza said the woman told police the man pulled a knife and beat her and her daughter. Shortly after, police spotted the suspect, who ran from officers. According to Espinoza, the suspect tried to fight officers and was stunned with a Taser multiple times.
The man faces several charges, including domestic violence and violation of a protection order.
The mother and daughter suffered minor injuries.
