A Mesa woman faces possible assault charges after she chased a man with a baby and a knife in hand Tuesday night.
Mesa police said Kassandra Henning and the man lived together in an apartment complex near University Drive and Gilbert Road.
Officers found the man outside the complex with two other children about 10:10 p.m. while Henning had run back into the apartment. It took some time for officers to coax her out of the apartment and for her to be taken into custody.
Police determined Henning and the man, who have a child together, were in an argument and the man tried to leave with the two children. The man and Henning then got into a physical fight when Henning allegedly attacked the man with a knife while holding their 10-month-old son.
The 10-month-old had a red mark on his forehead, which the man claimed came during the altercation.
The child was examined and will be OK.
Henning was booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated assault-domestic violence and child abuse.
