Sex request leads to assault, police say

A 37-year-old man was arrested early Saturday morning after a woman reported that he attacked her when she refused to give him permission to have sex with a friend.

According to Wichita Police Sgt. Steve Yarberry, a 29-year-old woman in the 700 block of S. Ridge Road told police the man had asked if he could have sex with a friend. When she told him "no," he kicked her in the knee, chased her around the apartment, stabbed at her _ but did not stab her _ with a knife and broke her cell phone. There was also a two-year-old girl at the residence.

The man was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of battery and one count of damage to property.
