FOX 2 Now reported:
A Portland man is facing charges after police said he choked his girlfriend with his dreadlocked hair.
Officers were called out to the 3200 block of Southeast 22nd Avenue at 2:30 a.m. Monday to a report of a domestic assault.
The woman provided police with a good description of the suspect and officers canvassed the neighborhood and found him.
Caleb Grotberg, 32, was taken into custody and now faces charges including assault, menacing, kidnapping and strangulation.
The victim was taken to a Portland hospital for treatment to numerous injuries. Police said they are not considered life-threatening.
Neighbors reacted to the allegations Monday night.
“It’s sickening that someone could have such anger in them, strangling with their own hair? I mean strangulation period, you have a lot of anger, but it’s shocking that someone like that would be on our street,” said neighbor Ric Leonetti.
Strangled by smelly hair.
What a horrible experience.
