"Officers arrived to find that an aggravated assault had taken place," Farkas said in a news release.

"An unresponsive female victim was located with apparent signs of strangulation," Farkas added.

According to a booking sheet, police determined that Charles Rees Karn had pushed his significant other causing her to strike her head on a table near the bed and lose consciousness.

Farkas says the woman was taken by ambulance to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, where she remains for treatment of serious injuries.

Karn was arrested and booked into the Laramie County Detention Center on charges of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury, strangulation of a household member, and domestic battery.

As of 4 p.m. Thursday, he had yet to be formally charged.
