A Woodbury man faces a felony charge of making terroristic threats after he allegedly told his wife he wanted to cut off her face, cut out her eyes and put a bullet in her head.
Robert John Krohn, 52, was arrested Jan. 19 after Woodbury police responded to a report of a domestic incident at a home on Lydia Lane.
Officers arrived, heard yelling inside, and entered the home and separated Krohn and his wife, according to the criminal complaint.
She told police that Krohn had punched holes in the walls and told her it could be her head, the complaint says.
He told her he wanted to cut off her face with a razor blade, cut her eyes out and put a bullet in her head, according to the complaint.
As the incident escalated, the wife called a friend and put the phone out of sight because he had previously taken it from her during arguments, according to the complaint. The person she called gave the phone to her husband and called 911, and the man heard Krohn make the threats.
The woman told police verbal abuse and violence have plagued their relationship for the past 25 years.
If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
