Marathon – One Marathon man was arrested for choking his girlfriend; the other for attacking him with a piece of rebar after deputies responded to Trailerama Trailer Park Monday night.
When Deputies Nicholas Abroe and Joshua Brady arrived at the trailer at 10:20 p.m., they found 61 year old Nelson Leon-Quincoses with an injury on his arm. He told them his nephew, 51 year old Hector Acay-Salazar hit him with a piece of rebar.
He said it happened after he had an argument with his girlfriend. He said Acay-Salazar got involved and the two men went outside. He said Acay-Salazar grabbed a piece of rebar and hit him with it.
When deputies spoke with Acay-Salazar, he said he saw the couple arguing and saw Leon-Quincoses throw his girlfriend to the ground and choke her. He said that is when he decided to get involved. He denied hitting the other man, however.
Both men were placed under arrest; Acay-Salazar for domestic battery by strangulation and Leon-Quincoses for aggravated battery. Leon-Quincoses was further charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a weapon after he was found to have a sharp pointed homemade ring made out of a grilling fork on his finger; deputies said they believe he made the ring to be used as a weapon when hitting someone.
