ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) – A Rochester man has been charged after deputies with the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office say he allegedly struck a female, dragged her on the ground, smashed her phone so she was unable to call 911, and strangled her overnight Saturday in Arcadia.

Deputies say 38-year-old John A. Leslie is charged with assault in the second degree, harassment in the second degree, strangulation in the second degree, and two counts of criminal mischief in the fourth degree.

Leslie fled the scene but was eventually located by the WCSO’s K9 unit and drone team. Leslie was arraigned Saturday morning.
