Man faces strangulation charges

CLINTON — A Clinton man is facing charges after allegedly choking his girlfriend and preventing her from leaving his residence Tuesday morning.

Jordan L. Guy, 25, 911 S. Fifth St., was arrested on a domestic assault with strangulation and false imprisonment charge. He was taken to the Clinton County jail, but has since posted bond.

According to court documents, Clinton Police Sgt. Steve Kopp and Cpl. Brian Pohl were dispatched at 8:50 a.m. to 915 S. Fifth St. in reference to a 911 call from a cellphone with an open line. The dispatcher could hear a female crying and a male yelling in the background, according to the affidavit.

Dispatchers plotted the phone call, which shows the general area and not the exact location, to 915 S. Fifth St. After determining there was no domestic disturbance at that address, the officers knocked on several doors in the area, including the defendant’s, according to the affidavit. No one answered.

Court documents continued that Pohl called the cellphone a number of times until a female answered in a soft voice and told him “he had locked the doors.” Additional calls went directly to voicemail. A short time later, Pohl received a text from that same phone number stating “he locked the doors,” according to the affidavit.

At approximately 10:41 a.m., Pohl observed Guy exiting the front door at 911 S. Fifth St. and stopped outside of the residence. Guy indicated the alleged victim was inside of the residence, but refused to let officers talk with her, according to court documents. Additional officers knocked on the door and made contact with her.

According to the affidavit, the victim stated that at 8 a.m., she began arguing with the father of her three children, Guy, about her cellphone. She continued that after he slapped her across the face, she dialed 911 without his knowledge and threw the phone under the bed. The affidavit continues that when Guy saw police officers checking doors in the area, he locked his doors.
