LOGAN — A 36-year-old Logan man with prior convictions for domestic assault has been arrested again for allegedly biting a woman’s hand, sending her to the hospital, according to law enforcement. Carlos Cisneros-Diaz was booked Saturday night into the Cache County Jail.

According to the arrest affidavit, Logan City Police officers were called to a domestic dispute June 29, near 500 E. 900 North. While en route, officers were told a woman had been assaulted, and a knife was involved.

When they arrived, police located the alleged victim with a laceration to her right hand. They learned during the investigation that she had allegedly been bitten by Cisneros-Diaz, and no knife was used. The bite wound required multiple stitches.

The woman told police Cisneros-Diaz had been drinking most of the day, and was brought home to sleep it off. He allegedly later woke up and started yelling and fighting with the victim and her son, the probable cause statement detailed.

Police separated the parties involved. While walking the suspect to a police vehicle, officers could smell alcohol on his person. They also noted his speech, although broken English, was slurred.

Cisneros-Diaz has prior convictions for domestic assault. In March 2022, he was arrested for trying to kidnap a woman near Logan High School. He later admitted to assaulting the woman, who he thought was his wife, to take her back home. He said that when he realized the victim was not his spouse, he let her go and drove away.

In October 2022, a judge sentenced Cisneros-Diaz to one year in jail after the defendant accepted a plea deal.

According jail records, Cisneros-Diaz was booked Saturday night on suspicion of felony aggravated assault and other offences. He is being held in jail pending arraignment on formal charges in Logan’s 1st District Court.
