ROCKLAND — A man accused of grabbing a woman and lifting her up by the neck is being held until a probation revocation hearing is held.

Conrad Freeman, 28, of Cushing, was arrested Thursday, June 30, and charged with Class B aggravated assault.

According to an affidavit filed in the Knox County court by Rockland police, a woman told police Freeman got mad after she accidentally hit him in the face with her knee. She said he grabbed her by the neck, lifted her up by the neck and then threw her to the floor where she struck her head.

Police reported there were marks on her neck.

The woman blamed herself for what happened and said she did not want to press charges, according to the affidavit. She also told police recently he had been pushing and grabbing her.

Freeman is on probation for a 2015 conviction in federal court for transportation of child pornography and possession of child pornography. He was sentenced to 70 months in prison for those offenses. He is also on probation in the state court system for a prior domestic violence assault involving a different woman.

The suspect asked to be transferred to a mental health facility during a hearing held Friday, July 1, in the Knox County court. Bail was set at $10,000 cash on the new charge but he is being held without bail for the alleged probation violation until a hearing is held on whether to revoke his probation.
