Maricopa police arrested a man accused of threatening to kill his girlfriend and daughters with a knife after an argument about his credit card usage Tuesday.
Cops arrested 60-year-old Chuong Bui at his home on West Cowpath Road in Senita after a report he held his family at knifepoint, according to a probable cause statement obtained by InMaricopa.
Bui’s girlfriend and his two daughters left the home when the officers showed up.
The girlfriend told officers she and Bui were arguing about his credit card usage, and she took the credit cards from him, according to police documents. She said her boyfriend grabbed a knife from the kitchen and threatened to kill her and himself.
One of Bui’s daughters told police she heard her father threaten to stab his girlfriend, her sister and herself. She saw Bui wield the knife near her bedroom.
Bui was arrested and booked into the Pinal County jail on two domestic violence counts of aggravated assault and threatening.
He faces five and a half years in prison.
