Police: Jealousy Could Be Behind Assault

A jealous rage could have sparked an assault on two people Thursday night.

Police say the accused assailant had an intimate relationship with one of the victims.

Officers say James Michael Cunningham, 34, assaulted a man and woman in the area of Old Colorado City. The male victim suffered fractures to his face and had to be hospitalized.

The female victim was treated on scene and is expected to recover.

Cunningham was arrested around 8 p.m. Thursday, and is facing charges of first-degree assault and domestic violence.
