Lt. Jon Garlick said the boy and his stepfather were arguing on Aug. 22 at a house on Newborn Street in Anniston. During the argument, the suspect put both hands around the boy’s neck, choked him and dragged him down the hallway, Garlick said. The boy’s mother filed a report with the Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday, Garlick said.
No arrests had been this morning, he said, and the Department of Human Resources is aiding in the investigation.
The suspect could be charged with domestic violence by strangulation, a felony.
