JASPER (NNDC) – A Jasper man was taken into custody early Saturday morning charged with Battery and Strangulation; both charges Level 6 felonies.

Jasper police say they were called to a domestic disturbance at an apartment in the 200 block of Baden Strasse at about 4:30AM.

JPD says 34-year old Phillip Neukam was at the apartment to retrieve “some personal articles.”

While there, JPD says Neukam became verbally abusive to the apartment’s tenant.  This prompted a friend of the tenant to interject in the matter.

JPD says the female tenant was struck in the mouth, injuring her lip, when the second man, Josh Young tried to interject and confront Neukam.

JPD says Neukam then approached Young while holding the tenant by the throat.

Then the tenant struck Neukam in the head with her cellphone in an attempt to break free.  Police say Neukam did release her and then gathered the articles he originally came to get, and then headed towards his home on Picadilly Circle.  That’s when JPD officers arrived on scene.
