A 32-year-old man was arrested Saturday evening after he allegedly assaulted his wife and an investigating officer, police said.
The incident started around 7 p.m., when an officer went to Parke West Drive and Quarterfield Road to investigate a report ++ of a man beating a woman. The 37-year-old woman was crying and bleeding from her forehead when she met the officers, police said.
She told police her husband stormed out of the house after she refused to write him a check. She followed him, and he hit her in the head and face, police said. He fled when neighbors came to her aid.
After the officer broadcast the suspect's description, two other officers saw him walking on Quarterfield Road near Old Stage Road, police said. They ordered him to stop, but he ran off and was captured at a nearby gas station, police said.
Officers took the suspect to the Western District station for processing. There he cursed one of the arresting officers and spat at another, police said.
The suspect, Gary Lee Evans, faces charges of assault and battery.
