A York City man accused of a choking a woman last month was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service on Feb. 28, according to a news release.

Tyrone Summerville,  35, of 717 E. Clarke Ave, Apt. 2, was arrested in the block of his home, and police say he was found with a handgun on him. An arrest warrant had been obtained a week before, according to officials.

Summerville was charged with prohibited possession  of a firearm and drug charges, according to online court records.

Original charges: At 7:20 p.m. Feb. 21, York City Police were sent to a home in the 400 block of Walnut Street for a report of a domestic dispute.

The victim told police that Summerville grabbed her by the throat and choked her, documents state. Police say Summerville took her to the floor and punched her in the face, causing bruising and abrasions.

Later that night, police spoke with Summerville on the phone, and he allegedly said the woman was lucky that he did not kill her, documents state.

For that incident, Summerville is charged with strangulation, simple assault and harassment, according to police.

Summerville was arraigned on all the charges Tuesday night and was remanded to York County Prison in lieu of $30,000 bail.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Summerville.
