    Local man denies

    domestic assault

    A Mendon man charged with beating and choking a woman last week was jailed on $10,000 bail Monday after denying felony domestic assault.

    Tristan L. Taylor, 29, pleaded innocent in Rutland criminal court to a charge of aggravated domestic assault in the second degree. He remained behind bars Tuesday in the Rutland jail.

    Rutland City Police arrested him Friday night after they were called to an apartment on Grant Street by a woman who said Taylor assaulted her during an argument. The woman told police Taylor kicked her, grabbed her by the hair and threw her onto a bed where he allegedly choked her.

    The woman told police she tried to fight back by biting and kicking and flailing her arms.

    Taylor was not at the home when police arrived, but he was found shortly after at the corner of Elm Street and Grant Avenue. He told police he had just been attacked by a group of people who pulled up in a car and beat him up, according to court records.

    If convicted, Taylor faces up to five years in jail.
