JERSEY CITY, New Jersey — A Jersey City man is facing assault charges after he allegedly choked a woman until she passed out and then used a stun gun on her. 

Ronald S. Parra, of the 100 block of Hutton Street, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one for allegedly choking the woman and a second for allegedly shooting her with the stun gun, the criminal complaint says.

The 23-year-old is also charged with obstructing a government function, resisting arrest and weapons offenses, the complaint says.

Following the May 20 incident, the woman went to the North District police station and told officers that Parra choked her inside his vehicle. She said that when she regained consciousness she got out and tried to get away but he followed her and used the stun gun on her, the complaint says.

Police went to Parra’s home but after answering the door he immediately closed it and blocked it with his body. He then ran through the apartment and out a rear door before being arrested, the complaint says. 

He appeared in Criminal Justice Reform Court on May 24 and the state moved to detain. However, Parra was released from custody Friday for free thanks to NJ Bail Reform pending trial.  

 

Released for free (on tax payers dollars) without any accountability or supervision thanks to NJ Bail Reform.
