Man charged with choking 5yo boy in NSW


A 27-year-old man has allegedly grabbed a five-year-old boy by the throat with both hands and lifted him off the ground in the NSW Hunter, prompting his arrest.

Police say the man on Saturday afternoon became involved in an argument with a 44-year-old woman at a house in Rutherford before turning and choking the boy.

The 27-year-old was arrested almost eight hours later in the inner Sydney district of Haymarket and charged with domestic violence-related choking.

He was refused bail to appear before Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday.
