An Odessa man was arrested Thursday night after he was accused of choking and punching a woman.

On Thursday night, officers responded to the 4200 block of McKnight.

When they arrived, they saw a woman covered in blood, running and screaming down McKnight while being chased by Richard Turner.

Officers detained Turner and talked to the woman who told them she and Turner had been arguing when he put his hands around her neck and she began to lose consciousness.

She also told police Turner punched her in the face and threatened to stab and kill her, which is when the woman started running.

Police say Turner admitted to choking the woman.

He was arrested and charged with assault by strangulation and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
