Minnesota -- A man, described as a martial arts fighter and an "avid weightlifter", was arrested in Burnsville for violating a domestic no-contact order.
The man was arrested earlier in June after he assaulted his girlfriend. She told police that he had grabbed her by the throat and began to squeeze, cutting off her airway.
At one point, the man reportedly picked up the victim and threw her toward a crib where their 6-month-old baby was sleeping, according to burnsville.patch.com.
A responding officer at the time had noted broken blood vessels in the corners of the woman's eyeballs (a symptom of strangulation) and red marks on the right side of the woman's throat.
