SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. – Scottsbluff Police and Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 2200 block of West 15th Street in reference to a woman’s choking.

A witness said a man and a woman were physically fighting in the street, and she nearly hit them with her vehicle.

The man has been identified as Albert Ramirez, 42.

The altercation between Ramirez and the victim began when she asked him to leave his property.

He got angry, took his phone, then strangled her and punched her several times in the head.

Court documents indicate there were clear marks on his neck consistent with choking.

She also informed police that on two occasions while Ramirez was at home, she woke up touching him inappropriately over his clothes.

She said she was afraid of Ramirez because he told her “that if he ever goes back to prison, he will be worth it”.

He is arrested for strangulation, common assault, terrorist threats and third degree sexual assault X2.
