An Arkansas City man has been arrested in connection with a case of aggravated battery. Ark City Police took 47 year old Evaristo Gutierrez into custody, charging him with one felony count of aggravated battery and domestic violence. His arrest comes after officers were called to a home in Arkansas City, where a 37 year old woman… whose name is not being released… told them that during an altercation, Gutierrez tried several times to stab her with a knife, and eventually succeeded… stabbing her through one of her ears. The victim had to be treated for her injuries at South Central Kansas Medical Center. Gutierrez had already fled by the time officers arrived, but they found him shortly after it happened, and he was arrested and taken into custody on West Cedar Avenue. Now, Gutierrez is in the Cowley County Jail in Winfield, where he is being held on $10,000 bond.
