MILFORD - A 31-year-old New Haven man has been arrested for allegedly wrapping his arm around a woman’s neck that restricted her breathing.
Joshua Hayes, of Hurlbert Street, was charged with second-degree strangulation, third-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
According to Officer Joseph Dempsey, police responded to the area of Meadows End Road near Old Point Road around 2 p.m. Wednesday on a report of a possible domestic violence.
“Officers arrived and found the male half, Hayes, who had reportedly left the residence after the female victim had called 911,” Dempsey said in a release. “Investigation led to the arrest of Hayes who is accused of wrapping his arm around the female’s neck, restricting her breathing during the course of a verbal argument.”
Hayes is scheduled to appear in Milford Superior Court on Thursday.
