It is alleged Montes broke into a woman’s residence and got into an altercation with her. He placed his hands around the victim’s neck while she was attempting to call 911 for emergency assistance. Montes then stole the victim’s vehicle before fleeing the scene to the City of Rochester.

Montes is due to appear in the Town of Ontario Court at a later date.
