Police Searching for Man Involved in Violent Domestic Issue

2/7/12 – Authorities are searching for a man who allegedly beat up his girlfriend and later held a knife to another man’s throat early this morning. Dodge County Sheriff Todd Nehls says they were called out to a residence on Pond Road in the town of Rubicon around 2:45 this morning for a report of a domestic incident. Nehls says the 36-year-old man got into a physical altercation with his girlfriend, and when he learned police were coming to the home, he fled into a wooded area near the residence. As authorities began searching the woods for him, he circled around and reentered the home. He armed himself with a knife and threatened another man with it before once again fleeing into the woods. Nehls says deputies and the department’s K-9 team are currently searching for the man in an area around the home.
