MIDLAND - A Midland man remains behind bars after being arrested for assaulting a woman while intoxicated.
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.
Lellis could face up to 10 years if convicted.
