Male Suspect Arrested

KSAL Staff - December 31, 2014 11:23 am

A traffic stop leads to the arrest of a wanted man.

Police Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that a Saline County Sheriff’s Deputy made a stop Tuesday morning for a traffic violation and then identified the driver of the vehicle as a suspect wanted in the assault of a Salina woman.

Authorities arrested 41-year-old Mark Kirkendall in connection to an incident that occurred December 15th in a northeast Salina home.

Police allege he strangled a female acquaintance and threatened to kill her with a knife.

The woman escaped and as she was running away fell in front of a motorist in the intersection of Eastburough and Crestview.

Kirkendall is facing numerous charges that include aggravated assault, criminal threat and domestic battery.
