Tooele city police arrested a 19-year-old man Friday in connection to an assault and stabbing on Halloween night.
Police arrested Gabriel E. Mascarenas at a relative's home, where he gave up peacefully and was cooperative with police, said Lt. Paul Wimmer. He was booked into Tooele County Jail without bail on suspicion of attempted homicide, kidnapping and interruption of a communication device, according to jail personnel.
Wimmer said Mascarenas and his 17-year-old girlfriend went to the city cemetery to celebrate Halloween, but they got into an argument, and he allegedly choked her until she was unconscious. When she came to, she flagged down a motorist to take her to her mother's home, where she called 911.
