44-year-old Winona man Chad Schultz was arrested after strangling his pregnant roommate Sunday.
Winona Police were called to a Mankato St. residence where a woman told them she had been chocked. The victim is 22 weeks pregnant and said she could feel her stomach shaking while Schultz was chocking her.
According to the complaint, Shultz loaned the woman 10 dollars and became angry when she offered a driver 5 dollars for bringing her to a church. After yelling at each other, Shultz came over to the victim, pushed her down into a recliner twice and began choking her.
Shultz denied the incident, despite police seeing red marks on the victim's neck and their roommates verifying the victim’s account of the incident. Shultz told police they’d know if he hit a woman.
Shultz faces felony charges including five counts of domestic abuse. Shultz was convicted of domestic violence in 2011.
