Liberty police seek man accused in assault

LIBERTY — Police issued a warrant for a Liberty man after a woman said he punched her, attempted to run her over with a car and pushed her three children out of a vehicle Monday just after midnight near the 1400 block of Townsend Avenue.

The woman said the suspect was intoxicated but driving her and her three children home, and during the ride he punched her in the face, according to a police report.

The victim told police she got out of the car to avoid being hit again and walked toward her home.

The victim eventually got her children in their apartment, but when she came back to the road to grab her possessions that were pushed out of the car, the suspect attempted to run her over, the report said.

The suspect faces felonious assault and domestic violence charges.
