Eagle Lake Woman Assaulted 11 Jul 13

A 51-year-old Mankato man is facing a felony assault charge after allegedly breaking an Eagle Lake woman’s finger over the weekend, as well as interfering with a 911 call. Trent Bluhm was reportedly intoxicated when he showed up at the woman’s Sunday. He allegedly refused to leave, so the woman tried to call 911 but Bluhm reportedly tried to take the phone away, and broke one of her fingers in the process. He then also allegedly struck the woman’s husband in the face. The results of a preliminary breath test for Bluhm were more than .37% – or over 4 times the legal driving limit. Bluhn allegedly threatened an officer while on his way to jail as well, and was eventually taken to detox. He remains in custody in the Blue Earth County Jail.
