A Grand Forks man was charged in relation to accusations he strangled a woman and beat her dog.

Martin Madle Bol, 24, was charged with six felonies and two misdemeanors. His bond was set Wednesday at $15,000.

Court documents allege Bol punched a woman he knew in the face Saturday and again Monday. The woman allegedly told police Bol choked her until she passed out Saturday. The woman had bruises near her right eye and arm and her face was swollen, an affidavit for Bol's arrest said.

Bol allegedly refused to let her leave a home Monday, according to the affidavit. She told police the only way out would have been by climbing out a bedroom window, the affidavit said. Bol allegedly swore at her and threatened to beat her again, court documents said.

The woman allegedly told police Bol beat her dog with its leash and a stick. Court documents said the dog had cuts all over its head and body and was shaking when police arrived.
