Assault Charges Come After Witnesses See Oakdale Man Hit Girlfriend with Children in Arms

J'Marlon D'Anthony George, 21, of Oakdale is being charged with domestic assault by strangulation in Washington County District Court.

An Oakdale man was charged with domestic assault by strangulation in Washington County District Court last week.

On July 22, the Oakdale Police Department was dispatched to the 4100 block of Geneva Avenue after receiving multiple calls of physical domestic abuse in progress. The incident involved J'Marlon D'Anthony George, 21, of Oakdale and his girlfriend.

According to the criminal complaint, George and his girlfriend spent the evening at the neighbor's house. When the two arrived home they proceeded to argue about putting their two children — a 1-year-old and a 2-year-old — to bed. 

The argument escalated to the point of George shoving the victim to the ground while she was holding their daughter. George then wrapped his arm around her neck and squeezed until she was unable to breathe, according to the complaint.

When George let go, the woman took the two children in her arms and ran outside. Witnesses heard the woman yell "I can't breathe" and several witnesses saw George chase the woman outside while yelling, "I'll hit you with these kids," the complaint states.

The complaint says witnesses also saw George hit the woman multiple times in the torso while she was holding both children and almost dropped one of them.

George was previously convicted of third-degree assault, which also involved the woman.

If found guilty, George could spend up to three years in prison and pay $5,000 for one count of domestic assault by strangulation and could spend up to 90 days in jail and pay $1,000 in fines on one count of a subsequent violation of domestic assault.

This makes me very sad. Why is she with this guy who has a previous assault conviction? And WHY just 90 days. This guy is the type who won't stop until his victim really can't breathe any longer - lock him up and throw away the key before it's too late for her or the children.
