TIFFIN (KWWL) -

A Tiffin man faces child endangerment charges after officials say he used his child as a human shield in an argument with his wife.

Johnson County sheriffs' officials say 37-year-old Humberto Galarza, Jr. hit his wife Sunday, leaving a bruise.
When she picked up a kitchen knife to defend herself, Galarza then faced her holding one of his children and an electric knife.

All three of the couple's children were home at the time.

Galarza also faces domestic abuse charges.
