Man jailed for attacking woman, teenager

TAHLEQUAH — Tahlequah police filed a report this week on the recent arrest of a man for domestic assault and battery.

During the assault, a teenage girl attempted to intervene and Braden allegedly struck her in the face, causing a bloody nose and busted lip. When police arrived, Braden met them outside and told them he was ready to go to jail, according to a report of the arrest.
