“When Nguyen learned she was getting very bad grades, he got very upset. The victim advised Nguyen grabbed her by her hair and dragged her from a bedroom. Nguyen then got a large butcher knife and the sharpening stick and came into the room (where the victim was located). The victim then stated Nguyen raised the knife and stated he was going to cut her into pieces. The victim said she was afraid Nguyen was going to cut her.”
The police report continues:
“The victim stated that Nguyen eventually put the knife and sharpening stick on the table and told her to sit n the couch. Once on the couch, Nguyen grabbed a hard plastic attachment for the vacuum and raised it above his head and threatened to bash her with it. The victim advised she was afraid Nguyen was going to hit her with the pipe.”
