Report of choking leads to arrest
A 41- year- old city man has been charged after his sister reported he had choked her.
The man’s arrest came Wednesday morning when police were called to an east end residence and a woman claimed her brother had choked her causing minor, non life- threatening injuries.
The man was gone when police arrived the home just before 7: 30 a. m. but returned later and, upon investigation, was arrested and charged with assault causing bodily harm.
The man, whose name is not being released to protect the identity of his sister, was taken into police custody and is being held until a court date later this week.
