Guam - 33-year-old Ralph Toves is behind bars on charges of family violence and assault accused of becoming outraged when a woman told him to leave their apartment because he wasn't helping to pay the rent. Toves allegedly slammed the woman's head against the wall and tried to choke her with a curtain rod.
Neighbors helped intervene when they heard the disturbance. According to court documents, even after being removed from the apartment by a neighbor, Torres returned and allegedly assaulted the woman again.
Police noted however that they did not find the curtain rod that was allegedly used to choke the woman at the scene.
