A Woodstock man was arrested after he allegedly put a dog in a chokehold and punched it, then attacked two women at a Woodstock residence, court documents allege.
Nicholas K. Perlow, 25, of the 200 block of South Tryon Street in Woodstock, was charged with two counts of domestic battery, two counts of battery and one count of cruelty to animals.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Perlow struck a woman, with whom he has a relationship with, several times with a closed fist.
Perlow allegedly pushed a second woman to the ground and struck her repeatedly on her back and head, the complaint said.
Perlow also held his dog in a chokehold and repeatedly struck the dog in the head, the complaint added.
The incident occurred at Perlow’s residence in the 200 block of South Tryon Street in Woodstock on January 9.
An arrest warrant was issued for the man on January 12. He was taken into custody the same day.
Perlow was ordered held in the McHenry County Jail on a $15,000 bond. His public defender filed a motion requesting the court reduce bond.
A judge denied the motion and Perlow remains held in the jail as of Sunday.
A plea hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
