A 39-year-old Ala Moana man was charged Monday in the attempted strangulation of his 32-year-old girlfriend who is pregnant with his child.

Police said that on April 24, Michael Nale got into an argument with the woman and allegedly punched her in the eye. He then used both hands and allegedly tried to strangle her, impeding her breathing, police said.
