LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man already being held at Louisville Metro Corrections is facing additional charges for an assault against his former girlfriend.

Charles Cavins, 56, of Louisville, was being held for alcohol intoxication in a public place and violation of an emergency protection of domestic violence order. On October 21, additional charges were placed against him for assaulting a woman on October 8.

The arrest warrant states that Cavins was in a vehicle with the woman when he pulled out a hatchet and a knife, laying them on the front seat of the car. Cavins then told the woman they were both going to die.

According to the warrant, Cavins, while holding the knife to the woman's throat and the hatchet to the back of her head, took her from the car into a residence where he held and assaulted her for several hours.

The victim was finally able to escape and call police.

In addition to his original charges, Cavins is now facing two counts of assault, one count of unlawful imprisonment, one count of wanton endangerment and one count of terroristic threatening.
