A Florida man is facing multiple charges for allegedly beating and strangling a woman and throwing her dog against a wall. As reported by the Pensacola News Journal, 28-year-old Malcom Celestine, of Pensacola, is accused of attacking a woman on Monday after she told him that she did not like him flirting with a woman online.
The woman told the authorities that Celestine broke down a door, which hit her in the head, and then pushed her to the ground, strangled her with a shirt, and punched her. The victim was able to get away from her attacker, who then shifted his attention to a dog in a crate. The woman claims that Celestine took the dog out of the crate and began to choke her. He then picked her up and threw her into a wall.
The police were able to apprehend Celestine, though he resisted arrest and tried to run away after wrestling with an officer. He was booked into the Escambia County Jail on charges of battery, animal abuse, kidnapping-false imprisonment, criminal mischief and resisting arrest.
The woman and the dog suffered injuries consistent with the victim’s recount of what transpired in the alleged attack.
