Bozeman police arrested a man on Fen Way who allegedly assaulted his girlfriend with a laptop computer. Neighbors called police on Wednesday evening, April 3, after hearing yelling, banging, and screaming coming from the apartment occupied by Corey Murphy and Alexandra Martinez.

After a forced entry into the apartment, police found Martinez unconscious in an upstairs bedroom with fresh injuries that suggested she had been struck.

Murphy was arrested for assault with a weapon, and also strangulation of a partner or family member. The police report states that Murphy consented to a breath test and registered a result of .235.
