A 59-year-old Lawrence man reported aggravated assault, aggravated burglary and criminal damage to property in the 3200 block of Saddlehorn Drive. The incident occurred at 5:15 a.m. Sunday.
Sgt. Ted Bordman of the Lawrence Police Department said a 54-year-old Lawrence woman, who was known to the victim, arrived at the house and forced her entry through the garage. The man stopped the woman at the garage door.
“She then picked up an ax or a hatchet and tried to get in through the garage door,” Bordman said. When the man took the ax from her, she went outside and damaged a house window.
She was arrested without incident. Total damage was estimated to be $3,000.
