The victim is taken by ambulance to the hospital. Officers search the area to find the suspect. A young male with a bloody shirt and swollen hands is arrested after witnesses say they saw him leaving the scene in a red car.

Officer Drew Parrish of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department investigates a domestic disturbance call. The female reporting party claims the male half instigated a fight and physically abused her. The male half shows officers strange knife marks in his arms and claims that she assaulted him with a knife and tossed water on him. The man also tells officers that the argument began after she demanded more sex from him. The man is taken into custody and demands the female be arrested as well.
