Police say a man was stabbed several times and a woman was beaten in the head with a metal pipe during a domestic dispute in central Sioux Falls early Tuesday.

Captain Greg VandeKamp says officers were called around 4:30 AM to a home in the 300 block of South Walts Avenue. He says an argument between a boyfriend and girlfriend escalated and became physical:

The man and the woman were taken to a hospital and the man, 43-year-old Robert Apple, was arrested for domestic aggravated assault.

VandeKamp says Apple was stabbed twice in the stomach and once in the back, but the injuries to both were not life-threatening.
