A Sykesville man was arrested Saturday after he allegedly grabbed a woman by the neck.
Christopher Rockinberg, 30, of the 7400 block of Village Road, was charged with one count of second-degree assault. He was initially held without bond, and then released on $2,500 unsecured bond after a Monday bail review, according to electronic court records.
According to the statement of charges, Rockinberg was arguing with a woman when he put his hand around her neck and pushed her backward.
Rockinberg told an officer of the Sykesville Police Department that the argument was not physical in nature.
A witness told the officer that Rockinberg put his hand around the woman’s neck.
He could not be reached for comment as of 6 p.m. Monday. A court date is scheduled for Feb. 14.
