Local man charged in domestic assault
Police arrested a local man Monday for allegedly attempting to strangle a woman with whom he lives.
Mauricio Chinchilla, 21, faces an aggravated domestic assault charge after an argument about housekeeping with the 19-year-old woman escalated to violence, said Capt. Brian Batterson, with the Marshalltown Police Department.
Chinchilla left red marks on the woman when he threw a high chair at her, striking her in the left knee, and put his hands around her neck, stopping her from breathing for about two seconds, according to the police report.
Although the woman did not request medical attention following the incident on the 300 block of North 14th Avenue, because Chinchilla allegedly cut off the woman's airway, Iowa Code stipulates that the assault is aggravated.
Aggravated domestic assault is an aggravated misdemeanor.
