A Bryan man was arrested early Saturday after police say he sneaked up on a woman, dragged her into a house and choked her.

According to Bryan police, around 5 a.m., a woman called authorities to her home on Douglas Street. When police arrived, she was sitting a car and sobbing. She had a bloody scratch on her neck and complained of rib pain, a report notes.

The woman told police she was walking home after finishing a babysitting job down the street. Just before she arrived, D’quavion Jabrel Dixon, 19, whom the woman knows, jumped out from behind a tree, the report states. He grabbed her by the arm and dragged her into her home.

Police said once inside, Dixon climbed on top of the woman and choked her until she blacked out. The woman eventually was able to get away from Dixon and ran to a bedroom, but he followed her, punched and kicked her in the ribs, police said. He eventually left.

The woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Dixon was arrested at his home.

He is charged with burglary of a habitation in order to commit a felony other than theft, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison; and assault-family violence by strangulation, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. He remains in the Brazos County Jail on $27,000 bond.
