MOHAWK, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia man has been arrested after he broke into his estranged wife’s home with several weapons.

The Bluefield Daily Telegraph reports 30-year-old Benjamin Hodges was charged with several offenses, including night-time burglary and three counts of attempted murder.

State Police Trooper J.A. Tupper says Hodges broke into the residence of his estranged wife and their 2-year-old daughter on Thursday morning.

Authorities say Hodges was wearing a mask and was armed with three knives, a stun gun and brass knuckles. Tupper says he got into an altercation with his estranged wife’s boyfriend, leaving the man with a severe laceration to his chest. The man was taken to the hospital for treatment and released.

Hodges was arrested at the scene. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
