A man was placed in jail early Sunday morning after police said he tried to kill his girlfriend.

Damou Akbar Bradley, 27, was arrested and charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault and possession of marijuana. Robert Swanigan, assistant chief of Georgetown police, said the incident happened around 11:15 p.m. Saturday on Copper Kettle Path.

Swanigan said Bradley choked the woman with bare hands until she became unconscious, then stabbed her at least three times with a knife.

Swanigan said the woman was still in the hospital as of Sunday morning. Police were withholding which hospital she was admitted to.

“We want to make sure she’s safe,” he said.

A condition for the woman was not listed.

Bradley was lodged in the Scott County Jail.
