PRINCE WILLIAM CO. – A Woodbridge man was arrested Wednesday for pushing a woman to the ground, strangling her, and jumping onto a moving car as the victim was trying to leave, officials say.

A detective was driving around the area of Occoquan Road and Horner Road in Woodbridge around 9 p.m. when he saw a man beating the window of a moving vehicle while hanging from the driver’s side door.

The detective stopped the car and detained the man. Further investigation revealed that 40-year-old Ulices Guevara got into a verbal altercation with a 29-year-old female family member.

Police say Guevara grabbed the victim’s hair and pulled her to the ground during the argument. Guevara and the woman were separated by other family members.  The victim left, got into a vehicle, and drove away.

That’s when police say Guevara jumped onto the car and started beating the window. He was arrested a short time later.

Guevara is being charged with strangulation and domestic assault and battery.
