According to the statement of charges, Robertson put the victim in a chokehold and slammed her head onto the concrete in the 800 block of Ewing Drive in Westminster.

The victim repeatedly said her head hurt and worried she had a concussion, according to the statement. She was taken to Carroll Hospital.

Robertson posted $7,000 bond and was released from commitment and had a bail hearing Tuesday morning, though online court records did not note the outcome of that hearing at 4 p.m. Tuesday. A trial was scheduled for July 24.

No attorney was listed for Robertson in online court records Tuesday.
