A Des Moines man has been accused of trying to strangle and injuring a woman.

Bruce Cronk, 46, was charged Nov. 16 with domestic-abuse impeding airway and causing bodily injury.

According to a University of Iowa police complaint, Cronk strangled and choked a woman with both hands, then threw her to the ground. The victim reported having trouble breathing.

Cronk later allegedly punched the victim in the jaw, threw her out of bed, and got on top of her, and strangled her with both hands once again.

The woman reported neck pain from the strangling, and suffered a concussion, a broken toe, and chest contusion.

Domestic-abuse impeding airway and causing bodily injury is a Class-D felony.
