Downtown Marlborough Address Scene of Attempted Murder
A local man was arrested late Thursday after strangling a woman in a domestic violence situation.
The Marlborough Police Department came to the aid of a domestic violence victim Thursday evening on Monument Ave and charged her assailant with attempted murder.
After responding to a 911 call shortly before 10 p.m., officers discovered that Pablo Adolfo Morales, 22, of 26 Monument Ave., Apt. 2nd Fl., had assaulted a female, even choking her at one point.
"This was a domestic violence situation," said Det. Martha Shea. "The attempted murder charges stem from the suspect strangling the victim."
Morales was arrested on charges of attempted murder, assault and battery, assault and battery to intimidate with bodily injury, malicious destruction of property under $250 and impeding an investigation through witness intimidation.
He appeared for arraignment Friday morning at Marlborough District Court. Check back Monday for the disposition on this case.
