An investigation at a South Main Street home in Hopkinsville Thursday morning led to the arrest of a man for strangulation and assault charges.

The arrest citation for 32-year old Ramon Carrillo of Hopkinsville alleges he placed his hands around the neck of his 34-year old girlfriend, restricting her breathing.

Carrillo was located a few minutes later near the intersection of East 20th Street and South Virginia and was arrested on charges of first-degree strangulation and fourth-degree assault (domestic violence).
