John K. McPhail, 24, of 516 Ferry Ave. was arrested early Monday after allegedly assaulting a teen-age girl staying with him,
Officer Daniel T. Bird said.
McPhail was charged with third-degree assault following the 2 a.m. incident. Roxanne E. Burt, 17, said McPhail came home drunk and got into an
argument with her.
She told Bird that McPhail dragged her by the shirt into a bedroom, shoved her up against a stereo, and then choked her from behind when she tried to get away.
