DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach man is facing a strangulation charge after allegedly attacking a woman with whom he lives — or lived. Anthony Arteaga, 41, of Sunset Pines Drive in Delray Beach was booked into jail on November 7th. He was released on his own recognizance the following day.

Delray Beach Police filed the following report when Arteaga was arrested. It was obtained by BocaNewsNow.com. We have redacted the victim’s name.

“The victim stated that her and Anthony Arteaga have been separated for several months but still live in the same house. Recently, Anthony relapsed and started drinking alcohol again and has been aggressive towards her. Yesterday, 10/29/2022, Anthony had tried to talk to (the victim) by calling her multiple times while he was drunk but she did not answer. Today, (the victim) came home and went straight to her room and into the shower. When she was coming out of the shower, Anthony confronted her about why she had been ignoring him.

(The victim) tried explaining that he is sick and needs to get help which made him angrier. The confrontation escalated when Anthony walked into the bathroom and proceeded to choke (the victim) while yelling at her. (The victim) stated that the incident happened so fast, but she was able to push him off. (The victim) then closed the bedroom door and locked herself inside. (The victim) yelled at Anthony that she would be calling the police if he didn’t stop. Anthony kept banging on the door, so she proceeded to call police which caused Anthony to leave the residence.

(The victim) had several red marks around her throat area which are consistent with her statement. (The victim) refused medical attention.”

Anthony Arteaga has no other criminal interaction listed with the Palm Beach County Clerk of Courts.
