Deputies in Mohave County have arrested a man who they believe choked a woman before hitting her with a table. 

According to the Mohave County Sheriff's Office, Harry Doyle was arrested after a woman, who had scratches on her arms, shoulders and neck, contacted deputies. 

The 45-year-old woman said she woke up around 6:30 a.m. to find the 47-year-old suspect standing over her while she was in her bed. 

Deputies say the woman was then choked by Doyle, who then hit her with a table while she was still in bed. 

Doyle then left the woman's home located near Diagonal Way and Historic Route 66. 

The woman was taken to a hospital, and Doyle was located at a nearby home where he was taken into custody. 

The man had a warrant for probation violation; he was booked into the Mohave County Jail on aggravated assault and criminal trespassing charges.
