More details have now been released on an incident near Lafayette Wednesday night, when a man threatened to kill his girlfriend and responding police officers.
The report says the suspect allegedly assaulted 28-year old Laruie Arbaugh by grabbing her around the throat and holding a gun to her head, while saying he would kill her.
Units from the Sheriff’s Office, Kentucky State Police and Hopkinsville Police would all respond shortly before 6pm and set up a perimeter around a field after the suspect ran there on foot.
The accused had been armed with a rifle and threatened to kill any police officer who showed up, but Sheriff’s Office spokesman Chris Miller says police believe his weapons have been accounted for.
The suspect remains at large and is wanted on Wanton Endangerment, Terroristic Threatening and Assault Charges. Captain Miller declined to release the suspect’s name.
