Lincoln police have arrested a man accused of beating his girlfriend and threatening to "gut" their 6-month-old daughter with a knife.
Police say the 39-year-old man held a knife alongside the baby
during a fight with his girlfriend. Police also say he kicked the

the knife down before police arrived.
The man is being held in a local jail and faces 10 felony
counts, including making terroristic threats and child abuse.
