CORNING | A 27-year-old Corning man was arrested late Tuesday night after allegedly harassing, assaulting and choking a woman when he discovered she was talking to another man.

William Griffin, of 64 South Bridge St., was charged with second-degree harassment, third-degree menacing, third-degree assault and criminal obstruction of breathing, according to Corning City Police.

Griffin dragged the woman around by her hair and kicked her several times at a Southside residence, said Lt. Jeff Spaulding.

The woman suffered multiple injuries.

Griffin was arrested at the scene and arraigned Wednesday morning in Corning City Court by Judge Mathew McCarthy. He was sent to the Steuben County Jail on $2,000 cash bail.
