An Oneonta man was arrested Wednesday night and accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend.
Charles J. Mehalick, 27, of 52 Elm St., Oneonta, was wanted on a warrant out of Menands, an Albany suburb, after the ex-girlfriend was found there and transported to a hospital, Sgt. Frank Lacosse of the Menands Police Department said by phone Thursday.
Also arrested was Mehalick’s mother, Roxann Homan, 53, of Stamford.
Lacosse said the two are accused of abducting the ex-girlfriend in Oneonta, driving her in a van to Menands and leaving her there. She allegedly was assaulted along the way.
Both are accused of assault in the second degree and unlawful imprisonment, Lacosse said. Mehalick, who has a history of domestic violence and minor alcohol-related incidents, Lacosse said, also was charged with strangulation.
Oneonta police officers detained Mehalick without incident at the Novelty Lounge on Main Street and turned him over to state police, Oneonta Police Lt. Douglas Brenner said.
His mother was arrested in Stamford, state police said.
