SCRANTON

Authorities are looking for a man after city police said he choked a woman until she passed out Thursday because he was annoyed about a live feed she put on Facebook.

Dajuan Saunders, 537 Linden St., Scranton, walked into Aquilah Saunders’ home on Mary Street and began “striking her everywhere,” including her face and back, before choking her until she got dizzy and fell, she told police. When she got up, Saunders, 36, choked her from behind until she passed out, police said.

Saunders resided at MinSec, a halfway house-type program on Linden Street for parolees re-entering society, Lt. Marty Crofton said.
