A Massachusetts man is facing multiple charges for kicking his wife and trying to stab her cat after she purchased a package of $1 freezer bags.
The Telegram & Gazette reported that the $1 freezer bags caused 24-year-old Kwadwo Amoafo Amaniampong to go into a rage in East Brookfield on Monday night. After throwing the bags onto a neighbor’s roof, he allegedly kicked his wife.
The wife waited for him to calm down and told him that she wanted to separate. This again enraged Amaniampong. So, he choked her cat and threw it into a door, the wife said in a statement to police.
After the wife tried to rescue the cat from its hiding place under the couch, she said that Amaniampong tried to stab the animal with a butcher knife.
The wife was eventually able to flee to her car with the cat, and then called police after he went to work.
Police later arrested Amaniampong at his job. He was charged with assault and battery and animal cruelty.
Judge Maura McCarthy ordered Amaniampong to stay away from his wife and animals. Bail was set at $250 because Amaniampong said that his wallet had been stolen. His next court date is scheduled for March 25.
