An Oakdale man was found guilty of domestic assault by strangulation last week.

Marlon V. Walker, 20, was sentenced in Washington County District Court last week for an incident that occurred in May.

According to the criminal complaint:

Police were called to the 4100 block of Geneva Avenue. When police arrived to the door they heard a woman scream "Let me go." The woman then opened the door and said she had gotten into an argument with her boyfriend. 

Officers saw a man lying on the couch and Walker walk out of the bathroom. Walker told officers that his name was "Jerome Hibbs." The woman told officers that she wanted both men to leave.

When the two men left the woman told police that Walker gave a false name. She told officers that he was the father of her two children and they had been dating for four years. 

The woman reported that Walker wanted to have sex with her and when she refused he began to push her and cover her mouth. The woman said that Walker grabbed her throat "so hard that she could not breathe or swallow."

She also told officers that Walker had punched her in the face and threatened to shoot her one week earlier. 

The court sentenced Walker to 90 days in jail with 90 days credit. Walker must also pay a $50 fine plus $85 surcharges with 180 days.
