Crystal man arrested for assault after choking girlfriend
A 20-year-old Crystal man was arrested after choking his girlfriend.
Deputies were called to the home in Crystal Township on Saturday afternoon on reports that a 37-year-old woman was choked by her live-in boyfriend.
The man was arrested at the scene.
The victim received medial treatment for non-life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital the same day.
The man was held at the Montcalm County Jail on a charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.
He is expected to be formally charged Monday.
