Roosevelt, Ut.- On 4/11/23, at around 12:30 pm, RPD was dispatched to a domestic violence incident. Upon arrival, Officer Knight spoke with 20-year-old William Brayden G. Whitehead.

William Brayden G. Whitehead

William stated he and the victim had been involved in a physical altercation, and he was standing near the female when a verbal argument started. William stated the female hit him with a closed fist, and he then pushed her.

William said that is when he punched her with his right fist on the shoulder or face. William said the victim, and he had tripped, and they were lying on the floor next to each other. William then grabbed the victim around the neck and began to strangle the victim. William stated he squeezed her neck pretty hard.

Officer Knight then spoke with the female, who stated that a child was present during the altercation. The victim stated William had gotten in her face and was yelling, and she told him to leave her alone and didn't want to argue in front of the child.

The victim said she reached out and slapped William, and he then shoved her down, and she hit her head on the bed frame. William followed her to the ground, grabbed her around the throat, and strangled her.

She was gasping for air, telling William she couldn't breathe, and tapping his arms to get him to stop squeezing. The victim said that the child watched the entire altercation.

The victim had red marks around her right shoulder, consistent with the shoving she described, red marks around her right elbow consistent with the way she described the way she landed, and red marks on the right side of her face consistent with the way William described physically hitting her.

After Officer Knight reviewed the circumstances, William Whitehead was charged with aggravated assault, domestic violence, and commission of domestic violence in the presence of a child.

William was taken to the Duchesne County Jail.
