WEST HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -

A man in West Haven is accused of violating a restraining order to assault a woman outside of a home Tuesday night.

Police said Joey Longley, 23, faces a number of charges.

They said they were called to an address on Campbell Avenue around 11 p.m. for a domestic dispute.

Several 911 calls reported a man assaulting a female outside.

When police arrived, however, the suspect fled.

Longley later returned to the scene a few hours later. Police said they arrested him at that point.

He was charged with assault, threatening, strangulation, risk of injury to a child and violation of a restraining order.

Longley was held on bond.
