A missing suspect in a domestic violence case is back in custody. Michael Nordmeyer was jailed in Sarpy County Monday night after walking away from the hospital against medical advice last week.
Police were called to investigate a domestic disturbance on South 28th Street at 12:30 last Tuesday morning, December 17. The victim had called 911, whispering that she needed help.
When police arrived, no one answered the door but an officer then saw the suspect inside, getting a knife from the kitchen. The officers forced their way into the home where the woman who called-in the report told them that her boyfriend had physically assaulted her throughout the day.
Investigators say they heard the sound of a chainsaw in the basement. They found Nordmeyer down there. He was turning the chainsaw on and off and police say he had significant self-inflicted injuries from the saw.
Police subdued him with a Taser and he was taken to Alegent-Creighton Health for treatment.
Nordmeyer left the hospital Wednesday, December 18.
He surrendered to authorities on Monday night and he currently faces charges including First degree False Imprisonment and Domestic Assault.
