A Marathon man was arrested Saturday night for breaking in to his girlfriend’s residence, holding a knife to her throat and threatening to kill her.
Deputies David Lopez and Garrett Bragg were called to a trailer in Trailerama Trailer Park just before 11 p.m. When they arrived they could hear screaming coming from the trailer. They entered and found the suspect, 35 year old Yandri Lopez Macaya, on top of the 39 year old victim. He was pulled off of her and handcuffed.
The victim told the deputies he came to her trailer and pounded on the door. She said she could tell he’d been drinking so she locked the door. She said she was afraid, so she locked herself in the bathroom and called 911 for help.
The suspect broke the front window to get inside. He armed himself with a kitchen knife, then forced his way into the bathroom and held the knife to her throat, telling her he was going to kill her.
She said he punched her several times and choked her. That is when deputies arrived on the scene. The victim had injuries visible on her neck, face and arms. Lopez Macaya was charged with aggravated assault, burglary with battery on the occupant and criminal mischief. He was booked into jail.
