Strangulation Lands Man in Jail

Mason City, IA – A woman was strangled by a man in Mason City early on Tuesday morning at 1 a.m.

34-year-old Ryan Driscoll of Mason City was arrested and is now facing a felony domestic abuse charge. He allegedly punched the victim in the throat when she reached for the phone to call for help.

The victim had bruises on her and Driscoll had marks on him that looked like self-defense from the victim.

This occurred in the 700 block of South Jackson Ave. in Mason City. Driscoll is being held in Cerro Gordo County Jail without bond.
