Brother Chokes Sister, Threatens To Kill Her, Police Say

An arrest is merely an accusation, not evidence of a conviction.

Angkham Souvonghkan, 34, of Niles, was charged with domestic battery Dec. 1 after Niles police were called to a home in the 7900 block of Caldwell. Upon being told a man had threatened his sister, they searched for him but did not find him at that time, according to the report. At the home, at about 10:40 a.m., a 39-year-old Des Plaines woman said she was there taking care of her parents, including her seriously ill mother. When she arrived that day, she saw her brother there, and said he was not normally allowed there because of previous domestic incidents, but he came over and the parents let him in, police indicated. An argument started, and he lunged at his sister, pushed her to the floor, put his arm around her neck and tried to choke her, the report said. The sister broke free, but the brother punched her in the head numerous times, then ran toward the kitchen, threatening, "I'm gonna grab a knife and kill you." The sister ran outside and called 911. Police said she had red marks and scratches on her face and neck. 

Police then found the brother walking on Caldwell Avenue, and he told them he was looking for a U.S. Marshall. The sister positively identified him and police took him into custody. His court date was Dec. 2 in the Skokie branch of the Cook County courts.
