A Salina woman runs to her neighbor’s home after being hurt by a male acquaintance.
Police officers were called to a central Salina home on Wednesday at 1:38pm.
According to Captain Mike Sweeney, medics treated a female in her late 30’s for a small cut on her face. Police say she also had a black eye, swollen nose and lip along with bruises on her throat.
A short time later officers arrested 39-year-old Damon Allen at a house in the 500 block of Morrison.
Police say he allegedly pushed the woman’s head into a mirror, dragged her into the kitchen and slammed her head against a countertop before choking her with two hands.
Allen is now facing a charge of aggravated battery.
