MILFORD, Del.- A Milford man has been arrested for assault, according to police.

On Sept. 12, Joel Weche, 30, reportedly assaulted a woman following a verbal exchange, Milford police said.

Weche was charged with strangulation, first-degree unlawful imprisonment, third-degree assault and terroristic threatening.

He was presented at the Justice of the Peace Court 2, where bail was set at $9,000 secured. He was committed to the custody of the Delaware Department of Correction at the Sussex Correctional Institution.

Weche is scheduled to appear at the Kent County Court of Common Pleas on Sept. 22 for a preliminary hearing.
