The owner of a West Hartford hookah lounge has pleaded no contest to second-degree assault in connection to charges that he and his wife attacked each other with an ornamental sword.

George Ayoub, 47, has been sentenced to a five-year suspended prison sentence and a three-year conditional discharge as part of a plea agreement.

Police said Ayoub called 911 around 3:15 a.m. on April 22 to report that his wife, 24-year-old Najeh Frehi, had stabbed him with a sword at 1001 Arabian Nights Hookah Lounge at 134 Park Road.

"She stabbed me ..." he told the dispatcher. "Hurry up."
