A woman was transported to Saint Joseph London Sunday after being assaulted and chased by a man with a knife, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.
Deputy Larry Parrott arrived at the scene about 10 miles south of London around 4 p.m. Upon arrival officers learned that a man had allegedly choked his girlfriend, ripped her earrings out of her ears, grabbed her by the hair and slammed her into the floor and burned her arm with an iron while holding her against her will at the home.
The victim was able to escape and run out of the home to flag down help.
A witness said he saw the victim run out into the road with the man chasing her through the yard with a large knife and threatening to kill her.
Parrott entered into the home and found the man, Bradley Frazier, 36, of Corbin, hiding in a rear bedroom along with three boys aged 2, 8 and 9.
Parrott removed Frazier from the home and Frazier began cursing and threatening the victim, who was standing in the yard with other officers.
A knife was recovered from the kitchen area. The victim was transported to Saint Joseph London for treatment of her injuries.
Frazier was charged with second-degree assault, third-degree terroristic threatening and second-degree disorderly conduct.
Frazier was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
Assisting Parrott at the scene were Deputy Charlie Johnson and Kentucky State Police Trooper Stacy Walker. Also assisting at the scene were Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County and Emergency Medical Services.
