Police: St. Louis man forced daughters to assist in attack
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis man was facing eight felony charges Tuesday after allegedly forcing his young daughters to assist in the assault of his girlfriend.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 28-year-old Donnell Tyson was accused in the attack at his home on Friday. His daughters, ages 6 and 9, were home at the time.
Police said at one point, Tyson told one of girls to hold a gun to the woman's head. When she wouldn't, Tyson allegedly fired a shot, grazing the victim's face.
Police said Tyson forced the other daughter to retrieve a knife, which he used to cut the woman's neck.
The victim eventually ran outside. Police said Tyson caught her and attacked her again until help arrived.
Tyson was jailed Tuesday on $200,000 cash-only bond.
