A Somerset man was arrested Saturday morning after allegedly dousing his girlfriend with lighter fluid, according to Somerset police.
Cody Evans, 22, was charged with second-degree assault and fleeing or evading police, both felonies. Somerset police officers and Pulaski County Sheriff's deputies were called to a domestic argument at the Grand Central Apartments at 9:46 a.m. Saturday. Evans fled the scene, and police found him about 15 minutes later in nearby woods.
Evans' girlfriend, Stephanie Behnase, was treated for minor injuries and chemical burns, according to police.
