CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston police have arrested a man wanted for choking and beating his girlfriend at a Flood Street apartment on Tuesday.

Authorities arrested 27-year-old Stephan Montrell Aiken Thursday afternoon.

Police say Aiken struck his girlfriend, who is also the mother of his child, repeatedly with open and closed fists just before noon Tuesday.

Police also said Aiken choked her and struck her with a wooden chair while their child looked on from a nearby couch.

An incident report states the woman was briefly able to break free of Aiken's grip, but he came back at her and beat her again before she was able to lock him out of a bedroom.

Before Aiken left the home, he stabbed the bedroom door with a kitchen knife.

Police officers said the girlfriend was suffering from a swollen left eye and cheek and a cut to the inside of her bottom lip when they arrived on scene.

He is facing a charge of criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.
