MERIDEN — A local man faces charges after police said he assaulted and threatened to kill a woman last month after an argument over her social media account.
Emanuel Moyano, 28, of 630 Broad St., was arrested on Wednesday and charged with second-degree assault, third-degree strangulation, second-degree threatening, disorderly conduct and second-degree unlawful restraint.
On Nov. 17, police responded to a reported domestic dispute and met with a woman who had a large bruise on the right side of her face and ripped clothing.
The woman told police she got into an argument with Moyano because he wanted to access her social media account, according to Moyano’s arrest warrant. The woman said the argument escalated and Moyano struck her, strangled her and dragged her by the hair around the house. The woman also reported that he pushed her face into a stove and threatened to kill her, the warrant said.
Moyano also prevented her from leaving and tried to get her fingerprint to access her phone, the warrant said.
Moyano was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Wednesday. The judge set bond at $10,000 and continued the case to Jan. 5.
