LONDONDERRY — A local man faces domestic violence and child endangerment charges after Londonderry police officials said he punched and strangled a woman early Friday morning.

Officers went to the Sleep Inn on Perkins Road and arrested Joseph Shea after the female victim told authorities about the assault.

Shea was charged with endangering the welfare of a child because officials said the assault took place in front of two young children.

Details on Shea’s upcoming court date to face the charges were not available.
