BRAWLEY — Police here arrested a 32-year-old man after he allegedly physically abused his common-law wife and threatened her with a knife Saturday night
Police Lt. John Myers said police arrested Ricardo Castro Jr. about 11:13 p.m. Saturday in his residence in the 500 block of D Street on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, corporal injury on a spouse and threatening.
Myers said police think Castro choked Yvette Salazar, 28, during an argument that turned physical. Castro also allegedly held a knife against her shoulder while threatening to kill her.
Salazar suffered a cut to her lip, which police think was inflicted by Castro. Castro denied responsibility for the cut.
Custody information on Castro was unavailable this morning.
