A 27-year-old Killeen man is being held in the Bell County Jail accused of holding a kitchen knife to the throat of his girlfriend.
Bond was set at $70,000 for Brett Alan Moist who was arrested after police were called to an apartment in the 3600 block of South W.S. Young Drive shortly after 11:00 p.m. Sunday.
When dispatched, they were told they were going to the scene of an assault in progress where weapons were being used.
When they arrived they found the female victim had been pinned down by her boyfriend with the knife held to her throat and had been threatened with harm.
Moist was taken into custody early Monday morning, held in the Killeen city jail, then booked into the county facility on Tuesday.
