37-year-old Daniel Cox was charged with assault, false imprisonment, and aggravated assault in the form of strangulation. Cox’s charges stem from a dispute between ex-lovers that began at Cox’s residence and ended at a Shell gas station 20 miles away.
On May 26th, Officer Sipos was dispatched to a Shell station located at 8020 McCrory Ln. Officers met an injured Monica Streeval on arrival to the station, who began to describe the source of her wounds. Streeval and Daniel Cox were previously in a romantic relationship, per report. According to the affidavit, Streeval went to Cox’s home at 4017 Cedar Cir, in order to retrieve her phone. Streeval attempted to exit the house but was physically blocked by Cox. Cox then allegedly began to punch Streeval in the head and face regions.
After the initial strike, Streeval stated that Cox strangled her with his hands. Streeval did not lose consciousness but did not have the ability to breathe. Despite this, she was able to escape from Cox, exiting the premises successfully. Sipos noted contusions along Streeval’s neck and cheek areas. Law enforcement proceeded to take photos of the aforementioned bruises. Cox was taken into custody for the charge of aggravated assault and false imprisonment.
Daniel Cox was arrested and charged with assault, false imprisonment and aggravated assault via strangulation. His bond was set at $24,000.
