A 29-year-old Ardmore man was arrested Tuesday night after police responded to a domestic violence call at a northwest side residence.
Sgt. Brice Woolly, Ardmore Police Department Criminal Investigation Division, said officers located Dylan Lewis a few blocks away from the residence, located in the 200 block of 4th Avenue NW. Lewis was arrested without incident and booked into the Carter County Detention Center pending formal charges.
Meanwhile, medics were called to the scene to treat the victim who had sustained knife wounds to her hand as well as facial bruising, which Woolly described as consistent with being hit.    
“The medics urged her to go to the hospital for treatment. She initially refused and later said she might go later,” Woolly said.
The victim told officers she and Lewis had argued about his lack of employment.
‘“She said he grabbed a knife and she used her hands to try to defend herself.” Woolly said, adding the victim told officers she was the victim of ongoing abuse.
Wednesday First Assistant District Attorney Heather Cooper filed charges that included felony assault and battery with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor domestic abuse/ assault and battery. Lewis made an initial appearance in Carter County District Court before Special District Judge Carson Brooks, who set bond on the charges at $75,000, ordered Lewis to have no contact with the victim if he is successful in making bond.
Late Wednesday afternoon court records indicated Lewis remained jailed pending the posting of bond.
