Man arrested for attacking his wife
A Marshalltown man is charged with a felony after he allegedly grabbed his wife by the neck and strangled her.
Jose L. Napoles, 24, was arrested Monday, after his wife came to the Marshalltown Police Department with her children to report the alleged assault.
Capt. Brian Batterson, with the Marshalltown Police Department, said Napoles and his wife were arguing over relationship issues. During the argument Napoles dragged her by the hair into their room, threw her on the bed and continued to assault her, Batterson said.
After the assault the woman left with her two children; the children did not witness the assault, he said.
The victim had bruises and scratch marks around her neck area and was offered medical attention but she refused, Batterson said.
Napoles is charged with domestic abuse assault strangulation, a Class D felony, first-degree harassment and serious domestic assault.
