A 32-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Tuesday evening on charges of aggravated assault and domestic battery. Lawrence Police Sgt. David Hubbel said the incident was complicated by a language barrier between officers and the family.
A man inside a residence in the 1700 block of West 25th Street believed his sister had taken money from him. The man threatened her with a knife.
Hubbel said the man had put the knife away before officers arrived at the scene. The man was arrested and booked into the Douglas County Jail just after 6 p.m.
No one was injured during the incident.
