Couple injured in domestic dispute taken to hospital

February 16, 2010, 10:57 a.m. Updated February 17, 2010, 12:00 a.m.


A Lawrence woman was taken to the hospital after she was reportedly beaten with a hammer Tuesday morning, police said.

Officers said they were called just before 6 a.m. Tuesday to the 1800 block of West 26th Street about a domestic dispute, where they found the 35-year-old victim with nonlife-threatening injuries.

Police said they located the suspect, a 42-year-old Lawrence man, at a nearby gasoline station. He also had nonlife-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital, a police spokesman said. The man was arrested on charges of aggravated battery and criminal damage of property.

my guess is that somebody likes their eggs over easy, and that just didn't happen this morning.

Woman beat with hammer. Yes, very amusing. Men, it is your duty to teach the little woman how to behave. I got hammered last night, so you get hammered this morning. Sounds fair to me.

mariposa.. the male was also injured. perhaps she bashed herself with the hammer while hitting him. gotta look at it both ways. it isn't always the man who was at fault. and nobody said that the woman was the person screwing up breakfast. coulda been mr. mom.

Eggs were burnt; most likely..........

How do you beat someone with a hammer and not inflict life threatening injuries? My only guess is that he wasn't aiming for her head.

Mr LJW, can we get any details on how the man got his non-life-threatening injuries?

This is not anything to joke about. I don't know why people make light of such situations. I watched my mother go through domestic violence and it isn't pretty. Once my Dad nearly beat my Mom to death over the way she hung his shirt in the closet.

All I know is that is to early to be fighting. Its all I can do to get up and go to work let alone fight someone with a hammer at 6 am lmfao. The best part is, it was probably over the stupidest thing too...

♣homechanger, makes one wonder how you treat, or would treat, a partner.

Amy Heeter 7 years, 8 months ago

No she didn't homechanger but it didn't matter because he always found some reason. Mom finally got out but not without alot of emotional and physical scars. So sad you find humor in other's pain.

Interesting. We know very little from reading the article yet everyone, even the police, are blaming the man. As a male victim of DOMESTIC VIOLENCE and knowing that: 1) women are more prone to attack another person 2) neither had life threatening injuries(difficult to believe if a man hit someone) 3) the man was not in the home when the police arrived(men tend to withdraw) leads me to believe that the woman started this.

Don't know for sure. We don't have enough information.

Oh, arti- put down the remote and step away from the soaps - your imagination is running away with you yet again. :-)

Read for content people.. if the man was cited for criminal damage to property, it wasn't his house, and that's probably why he ran. No one is laying "blame" yet. Also Aggravated battery: look it up.
