A Manitowoc man is facing several charges after allegedly strangling his girlfriend. Officers responded to a Family Trouble Call at around 4:00 AM on Saturday in the 2100 block of South 15th Street. The woman who made the call spoke with police and told them that her boyfriend and her were sharing an intimate moment, when he asked her to talk in a why she did not want to. She said he then began to strike her, and put his forearm across her neck, strangling her. She was able to escape and let him cool down. She then made her way back into the room, and they started to become intimate again. Again he asked her to talk in a way she did not want to, and again he strangled her, this time with his hands. The woman was able to get away following a short scuffle. The man is now facing charges of Strangulation and Battery.
