Paris James Hazlitt, 19, has been charged with two felonies after allegedly strangling a woman and preventing her from leaving a residence.

According to the Helena Police Department, Hazlitt allegedly used a purse strap to strangle the victim until she couldn’t breathe.

Police said that during the course of an hour, Hazlitt prevented the victim from leaving a residence by knocking her down several times, blocking and locking doors, and strangling her a second time.

The victim told investigators that she’s experienced other unreported incidents of violence in the past with Hazlitt.

Hazlitt reportedly admitted to the police that he used the strap to strangle the victim but denied strangling her a second time.

He’s been charged with two felonies for strangulation and kidnapping.

During a justice court appearance on Wednesday, Hazlitt asked to be released without bond so he could be with his family. The request was denied. 

His bond has been set at $30,000.
