Wichita police arrested a 30-year-old man for chasing his girlfriend with a running chainsaw and firing shots at a group of people.
It happened Saturday night in the 2300 block of South Washington and 2000 block of South Topeka.
Police say the 30-year-old man had a argument with a 17-year-old man in the 2000 block of South Topeka.
According to witnesses, he threatened to shoot the 17-year-old.
He left the home after firing three to eight shots into the air.
As officers were responding to that case, the 30-year-old showed up at his 36-year-old girlfriend's house in the 2300 block of South Washington.
She had a cell phone he wanted.
He then ended up fighting her and pushed her to a couch.
"Apparently, sitting next to the couch was a chainsaw. He reached down, grabbed the saw and started it. He began to chase her into her bedroom with the saw," said Lt. Doug Nolte, Wichita Police Department.
The woman was able to contact police.
She wasn't hurt. A 10-year-old boy, who was also inside the home, was not injured.
Police say the man was taken to the Sedgwick County Jail and booked for aggravated assault, domestic violence and battery.
