A man who New Britain police believe assaulted a woman on Sunday has turned himself in, according to police.
Officers said they were called to a reported assault where a woman told them that 45-year-old Aaron Alexander Hill, of Bloomfield, attempted to strangle and suffocate her. The woman told police that Hill arrived at her house in the early morning hours. She said he was upset about an incident from earlier in the day and placed his arms around her neck in an effort to strangle her.
The woman said she attempted to fight off Hill and the commotion was heard by other family members who came to help her. Relatives of the woman contacted police and Hill fled before officers arrived. Hill has not been located.
The woman suffered injuries in the attack, officers said. Police did not release details about her injuries.
Police were looking for Hill and said they obtained an arrest warrant for Hill charging him with strangulation, unlawful restraint, assault, interfering with an emergency call and disorderly conduct.
He turned himself in to police on Wednesday night.
