Johnson City police charged a man Saturday with assaulting his girlfriend at a South Roan Street apartment.
Conatan Basurto-Rangel, 32, 2701 S Roan St., Apt. 119, was arrested after his girlfriend told police he choked her after a heated argument, police said in a news release.
Basurto-Rangel fled before police got there, but he spoke to police by phone and turned himself in.
Charged with aggravated assault, he was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $10,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance Wednesday.
