Police arrest a Salina man who was sought in connection to assaulting a female acquaintance in an east Salina home.
Officers arrested 36-year-old Brian W. Luebbert on Friday after he allegedly strangled a woman and threatened to kill her during a domestic dispute last week.
Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that the woman who is in her 30’s ran to a neighbors home for help after Luebbert left.
Police say he punched and kicked the woman, tried to strangle her and at one point forced her into a bathroom and threatened to kill her.
The woman was treated at the hospital for bruises and scratches.
