MERIDIAN, Idaho — A 21-year-old man is facing charges after police say he attacked a woman at a Meridian home Saturday.

Blake Emerson was booked into the Ada County Jail late Sunday night on a felony charge of attempted strangulation and misdemeanor counts of domestic battery and malicious injury to property. 

According to police, officers were called to home in the 4000 block on N. White Cap Lane for a report of a domestic dispute. When they arrived, a 20-year-old woman told officers that Blake Emerson showed up to her home uninvited, broke her phone and choked her unconscious. 

Emerson had left the home by the time officers arrived. Meridian Police released the man's photo and asked for the public's help in finding him.

He is currently on probation for grand theft and delivery of a controlled substance.
