A thirty-two-year-old Rome man was jailed Thursday charged with two counts of aggravated assault.

According to Floyd County Jail records, Christopher Cody Ely grabbed two women by the throat, depriving them of oxygen and leaving marks and fingernail scratches on their necks that coincided with strangulation.

The incident occurred back on May 8th at Ely’s home on Woodward Street.

Ely is also charged with criminal trespass and three probation violations.
