FLORENCE, Ariz. -- Authorities say a San Tan Valley man is in custody for allegedly choking his wife.

Pinal County Sheriff's officials said 28-year-old Boubou Lo is being held in the County Jail in Florence on suspicion of assault, aggravated assault and disorderly conduct.

Sheriff's deputies received a call from a 24-year-old woman early Thursday.

She said her husband grabbed her by the throat, shook her and tried to strangle her.

After being freed from his grasp, the woman told Lo that she was calling police.

She said Lo told her she would regret it if she did and then fled their home.

Responding deputies said the woman sustained injuries consistent with attempted strangulation and she was transported to a hospital for treatment.

They said Lo was found at his workplace and arrested.
