Three-and-a-half years after police said he attacked his girlfriend, a 52-year-old man has been taken into custody, according to the Rome Police Department.
Police said Hector Concepcion, of Bacon Street, Utica, was in a domestic dispute with his girlfriend at their home on Floyd Avenue around 12:45 a.m. July 19, 2018. Police said the woman was lying on the couch and Concepcion put a hand around her throat and a hand on her chest, holding her down.
When the woman tried to push him off, police said Concepcion punched her in the face multiple times. The woman was treated at a local hospital for her injuries and a warrant was issued for Concepcion, police stated.
At 8:39 p.m. Jan. 8, 2022, police said Concepcion was pulled over in a traffic stop on East Thomas Street. Police said they uncovered the warrant and told Concepcion he would be taken into custody. Police said Concepcion attempted to go into a residence and refused to put his hands behind his back to be hand-cuffed. Police said Concepcion struggled with the officers.
Concepcion is charged with one count each of third-degree assault, second-degree harassment, obstruction of a governmental administration and resisting arrest, police stated.
He is scheduled to appear in Rome City Court.
