Police Captain James Feldman tells KSAL News, that a 34-year old woman felt threatened when the man broke some glass at her house in the 400 block of Baker.

Officers say, 29-year old Joseph Daulton took the woman’s phone away after she stated she would call the police.

The woman fled to another room, Daulton followed and trapped her. The woman tried leaving and he started to choke her, while biting her ear and back.
