Assault at the 3600 block of Williams Street.
The alleged victim went with his girlfriend
to her father’s house. He sat down on the couch,
and a 60-year-old female (presumably related
to the girlfriend because they share the same
last name) confronted him, accusing him of “getting
into stuff,” and she told him to leave. When
he refused, she allegedly started choking him,
so he went outside to call police. Police observed
red marks on his neck. She was arrested after
admitting to police that she choked him because
he wouldn’t leave. CV
