Richmond Police arrested a Richmond man on a Madison County warrant Saturday afternoon that charges him with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence) minor injury, first-degree strangulation and second-degree unlawful imprisonment.
According to a warrant, on Aug. 29, RPD officers were dispatched to an apartment on West Main Street in reference to a domestic violence call stating that Christopher Woods, 30, High Street, was causing a disturbance.
Responding officers made contact with the victim who had called police stating that the above had prompted the victim to lock herself in the apartment and immediately call the police because she was "scared he would hurt her again," the citation states.
According to the citation, Woods knocked the victim to the ground and struck them in the head 10 to 15 times. When the victim tried to scream, the above allegedly put his hand over the victim's mouth and nose making the victim unable to breathe or talk.
When Woods stopped, the victim ran from the residence and Woods began yelling that he was sorry, the citation states.
The victim stated they had head pain, visible red marks on their left cheek, knots on their head that were painful to the touch and their left ear was covered in blood.
Woods was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Monday afternoon, according to online jail records.
