Within the last week, deputies with Lowndes County Sheriff's Office have arrested two men for aggravated domestic violence after the suspects allegedly strangled their victims.
Brodrick Marcellous Glenn, Sr., 25, of 311 12th St. N., was arrested Tuesday, about three days after he allegedly put his hands around a woman and attempted to strangle her, LCSO investigators said.
Glenn had a previous conviction of aggravated domestic violence and was on parole from Mississippi Department of Corrections, LCSO investigator Clint Sims said.
The arrest came three days after deputies took Jeremy Scott Andrews, 27, of 470 S. Frontage Road, into custody Friday after he allegedly strangled a woman the same day.
In both cases, the victim were former or current romantic partners, Sims said. Both incidents began with verbal confrontations that escalated into physical fights wherein the victims ended up on the floor with their attackers' hands around their neck.
In Mississippi, strangulation automatically makes domestic violence a felony.
In addition to domestic violence, Glenn has been charged with violation of parole. He is in custody at Lowndes County Adult Detention Center on $5,000 bond. Andrews has been released on $2,500 bond.
