A man was arrested early Saturday morning after police said he tried to kill his girlfriend.
The incident happened at an apartment complex at 25 Pine St.
CBS 3 media partner Mass Live and The Republican reported the couple was arguing late Friday night, escalating to the point where the man allegedly grabbed his girlfriend by the throat and attempted to choke her.
The man fled the scene before police arrived.
A little after 4 a.m., police said they found the man's vehicle parked on Olmstead Drive.
He was taken into custody and faces a charge of attempted murder.
The man will be arraigned in Springfield District Court on Monday.
