A Salina man was taken into custody on Thursday evening after a physical altercation inside his home with a relative.
Officers were sent to an apartment in the 1300 block of E. North Street after an 18-year-old woman called police around 7pm.
Captain Paul Forrester tells KSAL News that 49-year-old Charles Hamilton was arrested on a charge of domestic violence, aggravated battery.
The woman told officers that the two were arguing when Hamilton grabbed her by the throat and shoved her into a night stand.
The victim was taken to Salina Regional Health Center with injuries on her throat and neck that police say are consistent with being strangled.
