GARDEN CITY, Idaho -- A Garden City man was arrested Monday evening after police say he assaulted his wife, then badly cut himself punching through a window.

Officers were called to the home in the 400 block of East 46th Street in Garden City just before 7:30 p.m. The victim told police she had been beaten by her husband, 23-year-old Garrett Brownfield.

The victim told police Brownfield had just left the scene in a vehicle. When officers found the vehicle and pulled it over, they noticed the suspect was bleeding heavily from a serious cut on his right arm.
