26-year-old Yoenis Luz Anaya Tovar assaulted her husband, Bryan Hernandez De las Salas, at their shared apartment on Lebanon Pike in the late hours of January 19th. Hernandez spoke with officers, advising them that he and Tovar argued when she began making offensive comments about his mother. Hernandez made similar comments in return, which angered Tovar. Tovar started punching Hernandez in the head, leaving visible injuries, which prompted Hernandez to record her. Tovar then grabbed and struck Hernandez with a cooking pot. Hernandez further explained that amid the action, Tovar got a towel, wrapped it around his throat, and tightened it, hindering his breathing. Tovar let Hernandez go when she saw his eyes start to roll to the back of his head. Tovar then grabbed a kitchen knife, put it to Hernandez’s throat, and told him, “I’m going to kill you,” before slicing his hand with a pair of scissors, leaving a laceration. Hernandez provided the video to officers, showing Tovar striking and strangling him in the nude. As they reviewed it, the videos started to disappear as if someone were deleting them. Hernandez stated that the only other person who had access to the account with the videos was Tovar. Officers observed the apparent injuries that Hernandez sustained, which were consistent with his statements. Officers searched the area and located Tovar in her vehicle in the parking lot. Officers asked Tovar if she knew why they were there, and she said, “Probably because he called about an assault,” but insisted that nothing had happened. Tovar was deemed the primary aggressor and was taken into custody for domestic assault.
