APACHE JUNCTION — An Apache Junction man is facing charges after he allegedly attacked a woman as they were preparing to go on a trip.
According to Pinal County Superior Court records, Kenneth S. Tibbs, 50, is facing charges of three counts of assault and one count of aggravated assault.
According to court records, Apache Junction Police officers were called out to a home in the 1500 block of South Tomahawk Road at 10:38 p.m. on Sept. 29.
A woman at the home told officers that she had gotten into an argument with Tibbs as they were loading up their motor home for a trip to the lake. The woman said she locked Tibbs out of the vehicle and when she let him back in, he allegedly lunged at her, grabbing her by the neck and choking her. After Tibbs let go of her neck, he allegedly grabbed a dog leash and started hitting her with it.
The officer noted a bruise on the woman’s arm and scratches to her neck. The woman told the officer that her throat hurt, but she never lost consciousness.
Tibbs had left the scene and was later arrested by officers near 17th Avenue and South Mariposa Road.
