AUGUSTA — An Augusta man who allegedly choked a pregnant woman twice and threatened to kill her was indicted by a Kennebec County grand jury last week on charges of aggravated assault, domestic violence assault and domestic violence criminal threatening.

Patrick Sullivan

Patrick L. Sullivan Jr., 24, allegedly pulled the woman to the ground by her hair Aug. 25 at a Littlefield Street apartment, according to an affidavit filed by Officer Sebastian Guptill of the Augusta Police Department.

Sulivan then twice choked her, applying pressure to her neck and causing her to barely be able to breathe, according to Guptill.

Sullivan allegedly told her, as he held her in a chokehold, that he would end her life.

The woman punched Sullivan in the face and got free, Guptill wrote. She told police she then ran for the front door of the apartment, but Sullivan prevented her from leaving by putting her in another chokehold.

She said he released her when she screamed that she did not want him to harm her in front of her child, who was in the apartment.

She told police she ran for the kitchen as Sullivan followed her, then picked up the child and also grabbed a steak knife from the kitchen, which she said she held out in front of her as she left the apartment.

The indictment states Sullivan “did intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly cause bodily injury to (the victim) under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life.”

An indictment is not a determination of guilt but indicates there is enough evidence for the case to proceed toward trial.
