A 54-year-old Spaulding Street man was arrested in the 2200 block of South Park Avenue late Wednesday shortly after he allegedly beat and choked a Spaulding Street woman and threatened her with a knife during an argument.

Brian Fields was charged with second-degree assault, third-degree criminal mischief, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, third-degree menacing and criminal obstruction of breathing. The complaining woman told officers Fields choked her into unconsciousness after punching her in the face and threatening her with a knife during an argument about 9 p.m.
