ANGOLA, IN — Authorities took a man into custody after he allegedly choked a woman in a wheelchair after he delivered a meal to her.

The Angola City Police Department was called just before 7 p.m. Friday evening to building #7 at Village Green Apartments. Reports indicate city dispatchers received a call from a woman who said a Jimmy Johns delivery person choked her after she allowed him in to use her restroom.

First officers on the scene reportedly found the victim lying inside the front door on the floor. Investigators say she told police the man delivered her food, and then asked to use the bathroom. After letting him in, the suspect reportedly came up behind her, grabbed her around the neck and pulled her down out of her wheelchair.

The victim told police she was choked to the point of unconsciousness.

The suspect left the scene before police arrived. He was later identified as Nkhai Scroggins, age 18, of Butler, Indiana.

Scroggins was taken into custody by Indiana State Police and Dekalb County Sheriff’s Department. He was then transported to Steuben County Jail where he is currently being held.

The incident remains under investigation by the Angola City Police Department and the Indiana State Police.
