Curtis Williams, 25, of 828 Bush Ave., Alexandria was arrested Sunday night and accused of strangling his wife, according to Alexandria Police

According to the written report, the following allegedly occurred:

Officers arrived to the couple’s home about 11:52 p.m. and talked to the wife who told them Williams attached her while she was in the bed listening to music.

Williams allegedly came into the bedroom and jerked the headphones out of her ears. He grabbed her by the arms causing the wife to scream and scratch him while trying to get away. Williams used his forearm to press on his wife’s neck in a choking manner.

Once Williams released pressure from his wife’s neck, he allegedly kicked her off of the bed onto the floor. When she tried to leave the bedroom and make it to the hallway, Williams regained control and laid on top of her keeping her from leaving the home to ask for help.

The woman told police she tried several times to leave the bedroom, but Williams refused to let her leave. He repeatedly pulled her back in the bedroom for about 40 minutes before she was able to break free and leave the residence.

The wife went one block from her home and called 911 for help.

When officers arrived, Williams allegedly admitted to grabbing his wife’s forearm and stopping her for leaving the home.

Williams accused his wife of hitting and scratching him for no reason and that he grabbed her in self defense. Officers noticed multiple scratches on Williams’ head, face, neck and chest.

Williams was arrested and booked into the Rapides Parish Jail. He was booked on charges of  domestic abuse battery by strangulation and false imprisonment.
