Tiverton Man in Court for Multiple Assaults on Girlfriend
A 53-year-old Tiverton, Rhode Island man, under indictment for allegedly strangling his girlfriend on multiple occasions in New Bedford, is being arraigned Friday in Fall River Superior Court.
Brian Jagielski was caught last month in Chicago after being listed as one of Bristol County's Most Wanted Fugitives.
According to the Herald News, Jagielski is accused of strangling his girlfriend in January, and holding a piece of glass to her throat and threatening to kill her.
Police also say he took her to the Freetown State Forest against her will and threatened to bury her there.
Jagielski was on probation at the time of his arrest.
