RAMAPO, N.Y. – Ramapo police charged a man with assault after an incident on Route 59 in Monsey yesterday morning around 8 a.m.

Officers received a report of someone screaming for help in the area of an old drive-in theater on Route 59, and quickly located a female victim who reported an assault by her boyfriend in the wooded area behind the drive-in.

The suspect was found in the surrounding area, and was charged with second-degree strangulation, second-degree assault and criminal contempt.

He was remanded to the Rockland County Jail and will appear in Ramapo Justice Court next month.

Along with the assault, police responded to 91 service calls on Saturday.
