BAYOU VISTA, LA (WAFB) -

A 44-year-old man faces battery and assault charges for allegedly choking a woman until she passed out Sunday night.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office said Freddie Alfred of Bayou Vista was taken into custody around 10 p.m.

Deputies said their investigation showed Alfred and a woman got into an argument. It is believed he threw her to the ground and choked her to unconsciousness.

Investigators said once she regained consciousness, Alfred had a handgun and threatened to shoot her. According to deputies, the woman and her two small children had already left the house by the time they arrived on the scene.

Authorities said Alfred was arrested at the home. He was booked into the parish jail on charges of domestic abuse battery (strangulation) and aggravated assault.

No bond is set.
