Deputies: Man charged with assaulting girlfriend, taking her car without permission

Deputies arrested a Spencerport man in Wayne County on an array of charges after a domestic incident on July 17.

It happened in the town of Walworth, according to deputies, who say that Jason Courtney, 31, was charged with assault, strangulation, endangering the welfare of a child, and grand larceny. He was also charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Deputies said in a news release that Courtney was arguing with his girlfriend- when he struck her in the face, bit her arm, and choked her until she lost consciousness.

During that incident, the woman was holding a two-year-old child, who fell to the ground but was not injured. At that point, Courtney took the victim’s phone and car keys- fleeing in her vehicle.

He was taken into custody without incident and will answer the charges at a later date.
