Police: Man left crash scene, then assaulted woman at home
A Monroe man is in custody after a three-hour standoff with police at his home on Field Rock Road.
Police say Gary Boros was involved in an accident in New Milford after midnight Saturday but left the scene.
They say they then received a call from a victim in his home, who said she was being punched and choked.
With the help of a family member, police were able to eventually negotiate with Boros to come out of the house.
Boros is now facing several charges, including strangulation and assault.
He is expected in court Monday.
