At about 12:45 a.m. on Dec. 18, the suspect and the woman, 26, were arguing at a bar on Lewers Street. The argument escalated when the suspect allegedly tried to strangle the victim.

The woman reported the alleged abuse to police on Dec. 20.

Police said the man turned himself in at the police department’s main headquarters on Beretania Street Tuesday night where he was arrested on suspicion of abuse and seven counts of outstanding traffic-related arrest warrants.
