LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend during an argument.

According to an arrest warrant, Levar Haskins, 27, grabbed his girlfriend's tank top strap, put her in a chokehold and said, "You aren't going to talk about my mama."

The victim grabbed a pocket knife and stated, "Let me go or I'm going to stick you."

Haskins squeezed harder so the victim could not breathe well and she saw ‘stars.' She stabbed him causing a small laceration to his lower abdomen. He let go and the victim called 911.

Haskins and the victim have two children together.

He is being charged with wanton endangerment and assault.
