ELKO, Nev. (AP) - An Elko County man has been arrested after deputies say he tried to choke his daughter in a domestic dispute

Undersheriff Clair Morris says 40-year-old Henry Wallace of Spring Creek was arrested on a charge of domestic battery by strangulation.

Deputies were called to his home Friday night. A female victim told them her father had grabbed her from behind and tried to choke her.

Morris told the Elko Daily Free Press (https://tinyurl.com/loefjgl) on Tuesday there was evidence that supported her story, including marks on her neck. Two other children, ages 7 to 8, also witnessed the incident and gave similar accounts.

Wallace was being held in the Elko County jail where his bail was set at $15,000.
