SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Spartanburg County deputies said a woman called them after her boyfriend choked and assaulted her when she found him with another woman.
The woman called deputies a few hours after the attack Friday morning and still had scratches and red marks from the assault, according to a deputy's report.
The woman told deputies when she stopped at her boyfriend's work building on Zion Hill Road about 1 a.m., he answered the door in a towel and told her he had another woman over, according to the report.
Her boyfriend, identified as Eugene Jordan, invited her in and that's when the woman saw an old woman lying on a pool table, deputies said.
Jordan, 43 of Conifer Circle, then threatened to kill his girlfriend, grabbed her by her throat, and dragged her around the building by her hair, according to the report.
The report said at one point, she passed out, and when she came too, he asked, "Are you choking yet?"
She was able to break free, run to her car and lock it before he could get to her, deputies said.
When asked why she waited three hours to report the assault, she told deputies she did not want him to go to jail until after she talked with her friends, the report said.
Deputies said Jordan had prior convictions for criminal domestic violence and a warrant was signed for his arrest on the charge of criminal domestic violence.
Online jail records show Jordan was arrested Friday afternoon.
