A 20-year-old Pacifica man was arrested at a Millbrae hotel on Thursday after he allegedly strangled a woman until she lost consciousness, authorities said.
San Mateo County sheriff’s deputies responded shortly before noon to the El Rancho Inn on El Camino Real, where a disturbance was reported.
They found the victim with bite marks and injuries to her torso, arms, neck and head, and she was rushed to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the sheriff’s office said.
During an investigation, detectives learned that the suspect allegedly threatened to kill the victim as he strangled her until losing consciousness. She had regained consciousness by the time deputies arrived at the hotel.
The man was arrested on suspicion of crimes that include attempted murder, domestic violence, and being a felon in possession of a stun gun. He was booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City.
