Anglemyer, 22 year old was arrested on January 30th of this year after a 9-1-1 call sent officers to Woodies Lane apartment for a domestic fight. When officers arrived at the apartment they learned that Anglemyer had broken into a home and abducted his x-girlfriend from a residence on South Washington Street in Bremen earlier in the morning. He forced her to run with him using a knife and large screwdriver to the South Washington Street location. As they ran it was alleged that he struck the female with the blunt end of the screwdriver on the head and face and threatened to kill her. When Anglemyer got to the Washington Street apartment he strangled the victim with his hands and told the tenant that the girl had fallen and needed to use the bathroom. Once inside he locked the door. Police, responding to the 9-1-1 call, were able to subdue Mr. Anglemyer. They located the victim in the bathroom with a cord wrapped around her neck and not breathing. Once they removed the cord she began to breathe and gained consciousness.
