BIG LAKE, Alaska (KTUU) - A Big Lake man was arrested for intentionally attacking a member of his household using a sword.

According to the Department of Public Safety, a call was made around 10:20 p.m. on Jan. 4 reporting a domestic violence assault at a residence near Rogers Court and Boone Way in Big Lake.

Upon investigation, responding officers learned that 39-year-old Jason Daniel Gray had been in an argument with a member of his household when he intentionally cut the person’s finger using a sword. Gray then attempted to leave the location of the assault.
