Advertiser Staff

Three men were arrested in the Salt Lake area Tuesday afternoon following a dispute between a 73-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman described as his former girlfriend.

Police were told the woman was arguing with the man about 2:20 p.m. when he threw hot coffee on her face, resulting in second-degree burns.

Police said the woman's two adult sons, ages 20 and 24, were called to the scene where they allegedly assaulted the older man.

He was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

The woman was also taken to the hospital for treatment of her injuries, police said.

All three men were arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault.
