A man is facing a charge of strangulation for an incident in Derry Township back in November.
State police in the Greensburg Barracks said that on November 25th around 4:30 AM, Brian A. Graham punched a Latrobe woman with a closed fist, pushing her to the ground and choking her. She eventually broke away from Graham and armed herself with a knife. When he tried to attack a second time, she defended herself with the knife, and he suffered lacerations to his forearm and abdomen.
Charges were filed in district court in Westmoreland County for simple assault, stalking, strangulation and harassment.
