Bradley James Brown, 29 of Silver Creek, was arrested this week after reports said he threw a 26 year-old woman to the ground and began to strangle her to the point she could not longer breathe.

Police added that Brown then proceeded to spit in the woman’s face before smearing salvia on her.

Authorities added that a Taurus .9mm handgun was found in his possession.

The incident occurred at an apartment on Donahoo Road earlier this month.  

Brown is charged with aggravated assault, simple battery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felony.
