A North Platte man has been arrested after he allegedly choked his ex-girlfriend during an argument.
According to the North Platte Police Department, a female came to the Police Department at around 8:19 a.m. on Thursday to report an assault.
The female told Officers that her ex-boyfriend and father of her child, Kalen Gordon, had assaulted her earlier in the day.
According to the victim, she was leaving her residence in the 200 block of South Maple with their child when she noticed Gordon sitting in the alley behind her residence. A short time later, she said Gordon approached her and their child and began verbally fighting with her.
At one point, Gordon reportedly attempted to take the child and, in the process, shoved the victim into the vehicle “causing her pain.” According to Police, Gordon put his forearm against the victim’s throat, causing her to have difficulty breathing before eventually letting her and the child go.
The victim told Officers she attempted to call Police, but Gordon took her phone and threw it into the yard.
Following an investigation, Police found probable to cause to arrest Gordon and charge him with Domestic Assault and Felony Strangulation.
According to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, Gordon is being held without bond on the felony charge .
