A man has been charged with attempted murder, after he brutally beat and attempted to strangle his girlfriend in a rural part of Washington County. The girlfriend attempted to run at one point, but he dragged her back to the house. When she attempted to hide in the bathroom, he broke down the door. He repeatedly struck her and held her throat so that she could not breath.
The police arrived at the scene and arrested the man. They were alerted by a neighbor. She was home at the time, but did not have phone service, so she sent a Facebook message to her husband, who was not in the area. He then made the report to the police.
