EAST WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) -

A man accused of dragging a woman by the hood of her sweatshirt and then kicking her has been arrested by East Windsor police.

Officers said 31-year-old Marcus Abatayo was arrested by way of a warrant on Monday.

Abatayo allegedly pulled the victim to the ground on March 4 and dragged her to a bedroom by the hood, which briefly choked her. Police said he then kicked and stomped on her while she was on the ground.

Police said they received a report about the incident on March 7. That's when they applied for the arrest warrant.

Abatayo was charged with third-degree assault, third-degree strangulation and disorderly conduct.

He was released on a $25,000 court-set bond and given a court date of Tuesday in Enfield.
