Racine Police had a foot chase with a suspect involved in a serious domestic violence case Monday.

Anthony P. Golden, 23, had just beat the mother of his child when police found him walking near the corner of Layard and Jean Avenue, according to a criminal complaint.

He gave police a fake name and refused to stop for them. He eventually ran and hid in a garage within the 2500 block of Loraine Avenue, but then gave himself up to police outside the garage.

Prior to this, Golden argued with the mother of his child and began to punch her and throw her against walls. At one point he threw her on a bed and strangled her cutting off her breath for what she described to police as about 15 seconds.

The woman’s left eye was swollen and bruised.

Golden is charged with strangulation and suffocation, misdemeanor battery, criminal damage to property and two counts of obstructing an officer.
