Man jailed for assault


TAHLEQUAH — Tahlequah police made an arrest this week after a local man allegedly assaulted a woman.

Police said they received a call from people who could hear a woman screaming in a Scholars Inn apartment Monday night. Officers arrived on scene and contacted the woman and a man, 24-year-old Tyler E. Williamson.

Police said Williamson yanked the victim around by her hair and grabbed her around the throat. He was booked into the Cherokee County Detention Center for domestic assault.

In other matters, police took a report from Troy Farmer on Tuesday. Farmer said his vehicle was broken into during the night, and an XM satellite radio was taken.
