A Mankato woman has been accused of beating up her husband.

Mankato Police say 57-year-old Laura Hickey’s spouse called them after she arrived home upset with him and punched him in the head. The man says he walked away to give her time to calm down and she left for a bit but then returned and punched him in the stomach and groin area.

The criminal complaint shows Hickey claimed that they tussled and her husband ended up on top of her on the couch and she kicked him in the stomach and grabbed his groin while trying to get away.

She is charged with two counts of domestic assault.
