A Lancaster County man told deputies he was sleeping on his couch and woke up to his roommate punching him in his face.
Sheriff Terry Wagner says 53-year-old Allen Chilen was arrested for assaulting his 42-year-old roommate. It happened just after 1 a.m. Sunday in Martell. The town is located south of Lincoln.
The victim suffered broken bones to his face. He was taken to Bryan West.
Sheriff Wagner says the arrest wasn't easy. He says the suspect ran and tried to hide in the woods.
