Harrington police arrested a man for attempting to strangle a woman Nov. 11.

Police say officers on patrol responded to a report of domestic abuse at Clarks Corner Apartments. When they arrived the suspect, Ikeen L. Love, had already left.

Officers eventually found the suspect and took him into custody. During further investigation they determined Love assaulted and tried to strangle the victim. He did this in front of three children who were 12 years and younger.

He is charged with first degree burglary, strangulation, third degree assault and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institute in default of a $16,000 bail.
