A 50 year old Winona man is facing felony assault by strangulation charges following an incident Saturday evening at Mark and Huff Streets.
Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams said authorities were called to the area just before midnight and arrested John Edward Carlson.  Carlson is alleged to have grabbed and twisted a 47 year old woman's shirt so hard that she had difficulty breathing and had marks on her neck.
The two, who knew each other, had been at an establishment earlier in the evening.  Carlson is also accused of assault causing both harm and fear.  He was held in custody over the weekend.
