According to Bedford Police Chief Terry Moore, the victim said when she arrived home 27-year-old Ian Peaslee was upset that she had hidden his keys.

The woman said she hid the keys because Peaslee had been drinking.

“The victim said that Peaslee was holding a knife, but she was able to get it away from him before the battery happened,” Chief Moore added. “The victim said that Peaslee then started punching and kicking her in the head and abdomen.  The victim was able to get away from Ian and call for help.”

Officers went to the 1300 block of First Street where they located Peaslee and he was arrested on a charge of domestic battery.
