A Westminster man was arrested and charged Monday after he allegedly assaulted a woman, according to police.

Donald Prozesky, 72, of the 400 block of East Main Street, was charged with second-degree assault. He was held without bond, electronic court records show.

The woman said that she found Prozesky drinking in the kitchen at about noon Monday after he’d promised to quit, and she got mad at him, according to a statement of probable cause prepared by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.

Prozesky became angry and grabbed the woman’s left arm, pulling her to the floor, which caused bruising to her shoulder and drew blood from her knee, she told sheriff’s deputies, according to the statement.

The woman attempted to call police, but Prozesky prevented her from doing so, prompting the woman to flee the apartment and call police from a downstairs phone, she told deputies, per the statement.

Once a sheriff’s deputy arrived on scene, they spoke with Prozesky. He told the deputy that he and the woman had a “tussle,” but would not elaborate, police said.

The deputy wrote in the statement of probable cause that the 72-year-old man was “very clearly under the influence of alcohol and had a difficult time standing, walking and speaking.”

Deputies arrested Prozesky and the woman was taken by ambulance to the Carroll Hospital, court documents showed.
