Man arrested for assault at apartment of friend's mother

A 22-year-old Port Orchard man was arrested early Monday after allegedly choking a young woman and assaulting an older woman at an apartment.

According to a Kitsap County Sheriff's Office report, the suspect was drinking whiskey and taking pills at the residence of his friend's 57-year-old mother in the Mariner's Glen apartment complex.

The suspect, who did not know anyone at the apartment before coming over with his friend Sunday night, stayed there after his friend left and later began yelling and shoving his friend's mother around, according to the report.

When his friend's ex-girlfriend, who lives at the apartment with her ex-boyfriend's mother, took the suspect into a bedroom to try to calm him down, the man allegedly exposed himself and tried to coerce the woman into having sex.

The woman got away into another room and the suspect appeared to calm down, but according to the report he later came in and choked her, telling her "you better not say anything."

The older woman then managed to get the younger woman and another person out of the apartment, and they went to a nearby gas station and called 9-1-1.

When a sheriff's deputy arrived at the apartment, he found the suspect had taken more prescription Valium that belonged to the older woman. The suspect was transported to Harrison Medical Center for treatment of a possible overdose, and he later was arrested on two counts of assault.
