Garfield Street man arrested in an attack

A 56-year-old Garfield Street man was arrested at his home early Sunday evening shortly after he allegedly choked a Kenmore Avenue woman, threw her to the ground and kicked and punched her during an argument outside his house, police reported.

Raymond Swagger was charged with criminal obstruction of breathing, assault in the third-degree and harassment. The woman told officers the choking left her briefly unconscious until she woke up and felt Swagger kicking her as she lay on the ground.
