PORTLAND, OREGON (CBSNews.com) - Police in Oregon say a woman told officers her boyfriend choked her with his dreadlocks.

Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson says the unidentified woman was taken to a hospital Monday for treatment of numerous non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers searched the neighborhood and located Caleb Grotberg, 32, and took him into custody, reports CBS Portland affiliate KOIN-TV.

The police spokesman says Grotberg was arrested for investigation of several domestic violence felony crimes, including strangulation, fourth-degree assault and second-degree kidnapping. He was due in court Tuesday.

Dreadlocks are matted ropes of hair.
