Man accused of assault for attack on wife

A 34-year-old man is accused of trying to attack his wife at her Oak Harbor home and stabbing a knife through a door, according to court documents.

Nathan L. Christy appeared in Island County Superior Court Oct. 29. The judge found probable cause to believe he committed the crimes of burglary in the first degree, assault in the second degree and malicious mischief, all of which are domestic violence related.

The judge set Christy’s bail at $25,000.

On Sept. 23, a woman reported to police that she heard yelling and came down the stairs of her home to find Christy, who didn’t live there, standing near the entrance of the living room with a knife in his hand; he was yelling at no one in particular, according to the police report.

Christy ran out the door and the woman followed. He charged at her with a knife in hand, but the woman was able to get back inside and close the door, the report says.

Christy stabbed through the door twice, the report says. He was gone when police arrived.
