A St. Charles resident is being charged for beating and choking a woman Saturday in the 300 block of Scenic Cove Lane.
Ali Hadi Abaalharith, 24, struck a woman repeatedly in the face, head and legs and choked her for at least 30 seconds, according to a St. Charles Police report.
He also stood over her holding a screwdriver and said, “Don’t make me go to jail because I kill you tonight,” the woman told police.
According to the police report, Abaalharith has assaulted the same woman multiple times and “each time has become increasingly violent.”
Abaalharith is from Saudi Arabia and is in the United States on a student visa.
