Police arrested a Kenosha man accused of choking and attempting to strangle a woman while at their home Thursday.
The man was taken into custody following the 10:15 a.m. incident, according to a Kenosha Police Department report, which redacted the location of incident.
Police recommended charges of strangulation/suffocation, intimidation of a victim, battery and disorderly conduct, all involving domestic violence.
According to the report, the suspect pulled the woman up by her hair while she was sitting down and pushed her face into food she had been eating.
After she fled to her room, the man grabbed her again by her hair and threw her to the floor, causing her to strike her forehead on the floor, according to the report. When she tried to reach for her phone, which was charging next to her bed, the man grabbed it, preventing her from calling for help.
According to the report, she told the man to calm down or she would call police, but he became more upset. He then grabbed her by the throat and began to choke her. At one point he stopped, but then placed the woman in a chokehold.
Later, the woman’s sister called and the man let her answer the phone. During the conversation, the woman texted her sister to contact police, according to the report, and the man was arrested.
