NORFOLK, Neb. -- A northeast Nebraska man is facing felony charges after an alleged assault involving a pistol Tuesday night in Norfolk.

At approximately 10:39 p.m., a Norfolk Police officer was called to the scene of an argument at a residence on W. Monroe Avenue, according to Norfolk Police Capt. Michael Bauer. Norfolk PD spoke to the man who had called them to the scene. The woman involved in the argument, his girlfriend, was no longer at the home, Bauer said.

Shortly after 11:00 p.m., Norfolk Police were called back to the same residence for an alleged assault. When officers arrived, they reportedly found the original caller bleeding from his forehead. He stated that his girlfriend had returned to the residence with a man he did not know.

The unknown man allegedly pointed a handgun at the male resident, which then led to a physical altercation, ending with the resident being struck in the forehead with the pistol, according to Bauer.

While the officer was speaking to the man, his girlfriend and 27-year-old Cody A. Hansen, of Norfolk, came to the Norfolk Police Division. They both were interviewed about the evening’s events, Bauer said.

According to Bauer, a Ruger 9mm handgun was recovered from Hansen’s vehicle and Hansen was arrested for second-degree assault, terroristic threats and use of a firearm to commit a felony.

He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jai
