SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Police in Scottsdale say a man has been arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend at an apartment complex.
They say 34-year-old Andrele Williams was taken into custody Tuesday and booked into jail on suspicion of attempted murder and aggravated assault and strangulation of his live-in girlfriend. Police were called to the scene around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday about a family fight.
The woman ran from her apartment to the officers, alleging Williams had tried to kill her.
