SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a man was arrested after he choked a woman who had given him a ride from a Santa Fe bar to his vehicle.
Police say the 26-year-old woman agreed early Sunday to give 21-year-old Ryan Catron of El Dorado a ride to his vehicle.
Once at his vehicle, Catron is accused of choking the woman for about 20 seconds until she was able to break away and run away to a street where she flagged down a security guard.
Police say Catron drove away and was near his home.
Catron had no listed phone number.
Police say he’s being held in Santa Fe County jail on a $100,000 cash bond.
Catron was booked on suspicion of kidnapping, battery and assault with intent to commit violent felony.
