A Riverhead woman has been charged with felony assault and other charges after she bit, hit and choked another woman during a fight Thursday afternoon, according to a Riverhead police press release.

Keri Tokelsen, 21, was arrested after the victim called the police to a residence on Roanoke Avenue just north of Old Country Road about 2:43 p.m., police said. The victim said Ms. Tokelsen had started fighting and hit her in the head with a window squeegee, cutting her head, police said.

Ms. Tokelsen allegedly bit the woman “repeatedly … about her body” and put her hands around the victim’s neck, stopping her breathing, according to the police statement.

Ms. Tokelsen was taken into custody, and faces criminal mischief and criminal obstruction of breath charges in addition to the count of felony assault, police said.

The victim was taken by Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance Corps to Peconic Bay Medical Center for treatment, police said.
