FORT EDWARD, NY (The Post-Star) – A man who is in the country illegally from Mexico faces a felony and numerous misdemeanors after he allegedly choked and injured a woman who had an order of protection against him early Monday, police said.
Rodrigo Cabrera, 27, was arrested after a 4 a.m. attack at a home on Summit Street, Fort Edward Police Chief Justin Derway said. The victim suffered cuts and bruises to her neck but did not appear seriously hurt, he said.
He was charged with first-degree criminal contempt, a felony, and misdemeanor counts of assault, criminal obstruction of breathing, menacing and unlawful imprisonment and was arraigned and sent to Washington County Jail for lack of bail, Derway said.
Cabrera is in the country illegally from Mexico, and the U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement has placed a detainer warrant on him, Derway said. He had been staying recently at the Summit Street home.
Fort Edward Police officers Andy Bluman and Corbett Sullivan made the arrest.
