Cops Arrest Portland Man, 32, For Strangling Girlfriend With His Dreadlocks

Meet Caleb Grotberg.

The Portland, Oregon man is facing an array of criminal charges after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend early yesterday and “choked her with his dread-locked hair,” according to police.

Grotberg, 32, was busted after cops responded to a domestic disturbance call around 2:30 AM Monday. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of what police described as “numerous, non-life-threatening injuries.”

Pictured in the above mug shot, Grotberg was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on kidnapping, assault, menacing, strangulation, and domestic violence charges.

Grotberg is scheduled to be arraigned today.
