Union Woman Barely Escapes Domestic Assault

A Union woman barley escapes a domestic assault over the weekend. The Union Police Department responded to the 400 block of Hall Avenue to reports of a shot being fired and domestic assault. The man assaulted his wife by repeatedly punching and slapping her. She then locked herself in the bathroom but her husband managed to force the door open and began choking his wife while pinning her down in the bathtub. He then displayed a semi automatic pistol and fired the weapon. The bullet did not hit the woman but the struggle continued until police arrived on the scene. The Union man was taken into custody; his name is being with held pending charges.
