SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A North Liberty man has been accused of choking his girlfriend.

Anthony Long, Jr., 31, was charged Feb. 20 with domestic assault causing bodily injury.

Long allegedly punched his live-in girlfriend in the eye and in the mouth causing bruising and swelling, according to a North Liberty police complaint. He then reportedly proceeded to strangle his girlfriend by placing his right hand around her neck and squeezing it, causing swelling and abrasions on her neck, the complaint said.

The woman asked him to leave, but he refused. She then ran to their bedroom and curled up on the bed to get away from him. Long reportedly got on top of her, straddled her, and held her arms down. She started to scream, which caused Long to flee the residence, the complaint said.

Domestic assault causing bodily injury is a Class-D felony.
