When deputies arrived, a woman told police 20-year-old Dustin Cox of Bedford had struck her with an open hand in the face.

A family member who witnessed the incident tried to intervene and was pushed onto a bed by Cox.

The family member then threw an ashtray at Cox striking him on the head leaving a cut on his forehead.

"There were several children present during this altercation and officers subsequently arrested Cox without incident," says Chief Deputy Aaron Shoults.

Cox is facing a charge of domestic battery in the presence of a child.
