ROGUE RIVER, Ore. (AP) - Police in the southern Oregon city of Rogue River are looking for a man accused of choking a woman, trying to drag her into a car, then chasing her as she fled screaming in the early morning darkness.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports (https://is.gd/wMxQuX ) that Rogue River police Chief Ken Lewis says 32-year-old Jarrod Garwood is sought for investigation of kidnapping, assault and strangulation allegations.

Lewis says Garwood was just released from jail when he received word that his 21-year-old girlfriend was with another man. The police chief says Garwood went to the man’s house early Tuesday morning, barged in and wound the woman hiding naked in a closet. Police say Garwood pulled the woman outside to a car but she escaped and ran off screaming for help.

Police say a neighbor let the woman into his house and chased off her pursuer before calling police.
