Accused of choking and slamming pregnant girlfriend against window

Accused of choking his pregnant girlfriend and slamming her head against a car window, a 22-year-old man is in county jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or bond.

Cameron J. Frazier, 22, of 214 W. Thomas St., was arraigned before City Court Judge John C. Gannon Tuesday on one count each of third-degree robbery, second-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree harassment and criminal strangulation. Frazier was sent to county jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or bond, and his case was adjourned to May 18.

Police said at 2:20 p.m. Jan. 14, Frazier was riding in a car with his 20-year-old girlfriend when he grabbed the wheel and forced her to crash into a snowbank near the intersection of Floyd Avenue and East Thomas Street. In a statement to police, the victim said Frazier was upset because she would not drive him to Utica.

Police said Frazier choked the woman with both hands after they had crashed, and then he repeatedly slammed her head into the car window. The woman was 9-months pregnant at the time, according to authorities. When the woman tried to call for help, police said Frazier grabbed her cell phone and got out of the car.

A warrant was issued for Frazier’s arrest after he fled the scene, and authorities said he was picked up Monday morning.
