MARICOPA, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a Maricopa man has been arrested for allegedly assaulting his live-in girlfriend, who suffered a fractured ankle.

Martin Magallanes turned himself in to Maricopa police on Thursday.

Police say the 36-year-old Magallanes has been booked into the Pinal County Detention Center on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, assault, strangulation and disorderly conduct.

A 34-year-old woman says she and Magallanes fought Monday over an IPad and the password to her Facebook account.

She says Magallanes pointed a gun to her head and demanded she log in to her account so he could view her activity.

The woman also alleges that Magallanes choked her and she suffered leg injuries after falling down a flight of stairs.

Magallanges denies strangling her and having a weapon.
