    CHEROKEE, Iowa - Northwest Iowa police accuse a man from Cherokee of trying to kill a former girlfriend.

    Sioux City TV station KCAU reports Joseph Kosiba, 34, is charged with attempted murder.

    Cherokee police say he kicked in the back door of the woman's house Tuesday night and chased her through the kitchen with a hammer.

    The woman was able to lock herself and her daughter in the bathroom, while two other men in the home fought Kosiba.

    One of those men was injured when Kosiba hit him in the head with the hammer.
