FARMINGTON -- A 30-year-old Centerville man has been charged with three felonies after attacking two people with nunchakus on Sunday, leaving one victim with a broken nose.
On Monday, Andrew James Lukenbach appeared in 2nd District Court on two counts of aggravated assault and one count of commission of domestic violence in the presence of a child. He is being held in the Davis County Jail on a $10,000 bail.
Centerville Police Lt. Paul Child said officers were called to a fight involving "multiple people," at 10 p.m. Saturday, at a home on Porter Lane.
When the officer arrived, a woman and a man were in a car. The woman "was bleeding profusely from her face and head. There was blood everywhere," Child said. "She had a large gash on her face."
Three children, ages, 7, 10 and 11, were also at the residence and had witnessed the attack.
Child said Lukenbach came out of his house when his wife and her friend drove up. He then hit the car and the man with the nunchakus.
Lukenbach "was upset with her for spending time with another man," Child said.
When the woman, who is Lukenbach's wife, leaned over to the driver's side door and yelled at her husband to stop hitting her friend, he then struck her in the face, Child said.
Lukenbach left the scene before officers arrived. He returned two hours later and officers were waiting for him, but he denied using nunchakus to hit his wife, Child said.
"He said he used his fists, but her injuries were consist with being hit with some type of an object," Child said.
Police had been at the residence several times "on a variety of calls," Child said.
