25-year-old Ryan Michael Lellis was arrested this past Saturday for a third-degree felony of assault of a family member.

Police were called to the 3200 block of Patrick Place around 1:30 a.m.

The victim claims Lellis pinned her down to a bed and began to choke her.

A neighbor placed the 911 call but not before Lellis slapped the victim across the face and threatened to rape her.
