SIOUX CITY, Iowa — A Sioux City man has been accused of hitting his ex-wife in the face with a hammer.
Gary Clark is charged with felony willful injury causing bodily injury and domestic assault.
Police forced their way into the 66-year-old's home Sunday following a 911 hang-up. Court documents say Clark's 64-year-old wife was found inside with facial bruising and swelling over her left eye.
The woman told police her ex-husband hit her with a hammer. She was later taken to a hospital.
Clark was being held Tuesday at the Woodbury County Jail. Court records do not list an attorney. — AP
