IOWA CITY (AP) -

An Iowa City man has been accused of stabbing his wife repeatedly with a piece of broken glass.

Forty-eight-year-old Scott Alan Bender faces an attempted murder charge in connection to the Wednesday morning incident. Court records do not list an attorney.

Police say Bender attacked his wife during a "physical domestic abuse assault" at a residence.

Bender is accused of getting on top of his wife after she fell and broke a window. Police say he stabbed her multiple times with a piece of broken glass as he verbally threatened her.

A family member stopped the attack.

A complaint says Bender almost injured a major artery in his wife's neck. The woman survived, but authorities have not released additional information about her condition.
