Man grabs girlfriend by throat

A Marshalltown man is charged with domestic assault after allegedly grabbing his live-in girlfriend by the throat.

Randy J. Rosenbalm, 33, was arrested Sunday on the 1500 block of Marion Street.

According to police, following an argument Rosenbalm went downstairs to light a cigarette. His girlfriend tried to take it away from him because she didn’t like him smoking in the house with children around.

As she tried to take the cigarette out of his hand he assaulted her, according to a police report. While his arm was around her neck she tried to escape by swinging her hand, striking him in the face and causing him a nose bleed.

The victim was left with marks but did not require medical attention.

Rosenbalm is charged with domestic assault strangulation.
