Oct 17, 2018

A 39-year-old New Bedford man was arrested after police say he knocked a woman out of her shoes and choked another man at a Main Street apartment building on Wednesday during a robbery, according to police.

Jason Denwood is charged with unarmed robbery, assault and battery and strangulation after police located him roughly eight hours after the incident.

Police said officers received a report that a man and woman had been attacked, beaten and robbed at approximately 2 a.m. on Oct. 17. 

One of the victims reported that he had been choked unconscious by the attacker, while a woman he was with had $800 stolen from her pocket. The woman reported that she was pushed so hard that she “came out of her sneakers,” according to a police press release.

After issuing a warrant for Denwood’s arrest, he was located and taken into custody at 10:45 a.m. in the Woods of Wareham apartment complex.

Denwood is scheduled to be arraigned in Wareham District Court.
