A Westminster man is being held without bond on charges of assault after allegedly strangling a woman Sunday night.

Jesse Edward Schissler IV, 41, of Westminster, is charged with three offenses, including first-degree assault, according to electronic court records.

Westminster police were called to a Westminster home around 10:14 p.m. Sunday for a report of an assault, according to charging documents, and there interviewed a woman who said Schissler had choked her until she had almost lost consciousness.

The woman told police that Schissler had been drinking and was intoxicated when he began yelling at her and pushing her around before choking her, according to charging documents.

Police noted in their report that the woman appeared to be shaking with fear during their interview and that she told police “he’s going to kill me,” referring to Schissler, according to charging documents.

The woman told police that after the assault, Schissler left the house using her vehicle, according to charging documents. Police later determined Schissler does not have a driver’s license, per the documents.

When police interviewed Schissler, he allegedly admitted to having been drinking and arguing with the woman as well as driving in her vehicle and was placed under arrest, according to charging documents.

Schissler is currently being held without bond at the Carroll County Detention Center, according to electronic court records, and no court date has yet been set.
