JAMAICA — The Queens district attorney’s office arraigned a man last week who they say beat up a woman in his apartment.
Wazhinton Orellana, 33, of Sutphin Boulevard, was charged in Queens Criminal Court on April 8 with assault and harassment, the DA said.
Orellana allegedly grabbed the female by her wrist, twisted her hand behind her back and pushed her to the floor of his apartment, causing her to hit her head, according to the criminal complaint.
The woman was taken to a local hospital and treated for a fractured finger and pain to her head, the complaint said.
Orellana was released on his own recognizance and expected to return to court April 28.
