A Mankato man is facing three Felony Assault charges after local Authorities responded to a report of a domestic assault at a home on Thursday.
According to the report, 22-year old Ruben Gavino Leal engaged in a fight with a sibling and pulled a knife on the victim during the incident. Mankato Police say that Leal had allegedly taken the victims Xbox to pawn in order to wash his clothes, which later spawned a physical altercation. During the incident, Leal reportedly pulled the knife from the kitchen but eventually put the knife down and left the residence.
Court documents show that Leal has two prior juvenile convictions for assault.
The Felony charges include 2nd Degree Assault and two counts of Domestic Assault.
