From Mirror staff reports

A New Enterprise man faces strangulation, simple assault and harassment charges.

Garrett Dalton Foor, 23, of 1489 Potter Creek Road is accused of strangling a female victim multiple times and threatening her with a knife during a domestic dispute on Monday.

The victim told police she and Foor had gotten into an argument over money she owed him while in the back of a friend’s car while in the Woodbury area, according to a police criminal complaint. Foor reportedly put his hands around her neck and started choking her until she passed out. When she awoke, the defendant allegedly began punching her in the head several times.

State police said the victim reported the two of them got out of the vehicle and went inside the South Woodbury Township residence where Foor continued to strangle, choke and hit the victim multiple times.

The victim said she then went to the bathroom to clean up when Foor grabbed a knife from his pants and threatened to slit her throat.

Police said they observed bruising on the victim’s face and left arm and multiple contusions on her head “con­sistent with being struck with closed fists.” There was no bruising or marks observed on her neck.

Foor was arraigned Tues­day in front of Magisterial District Judge Brian Baker. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for 9 a.m. Jan. 16 in front of Baker.

The defendant is housed at the Bedford County Jail on a cash bail of $40,000.
