GOLDEN TOWNSHIP — A 27-year-old Mears man was arrested by Oceana County Sheriff’s deputies following a felonious domestic assault in the 5500 block of West Cherry Court near Wilson’s General Store early Saturday morning, Feb. 27, that involved choking the victim nearly to the point of unconsciousness, according to OCSO Lt. Craig Mast.

The man was later located by deputies following the 12:27 a.m. assault and lodged in the Oceana County Jail. The victim, a 22-year-old Hart woman, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Shelby Lakeshore Hospital and released, Mast said.

“A young lady who had been residing there returned to the residence to pick up some of her belongings,” Mast said. “She was met by her estranged boyfriend. He invited her into the house and proceeded to assault her.”

The woman was assaulted by “multiple methods,” the lieutenant said, including strangulation. She was choked, punched and kicked several times, he said. The injuries the woman suffered corroborate her account, Mast said.

“She was strangled on several different occasions to the point where she would nearly pass out,” Mast said. “She was just barely able to maintain consciousness.”

The police report has been to the Oceana County Prosecutor’s Office, and police are seeking charges of felonious domestic assault and/or assault by strangulation.
