Late Sunday night South Simcoe Police responded to a domestic assault at an Alcona home.
Once the suspect found out that police were contacted, he fled the scene.
Officers tended to the victim who had been choked and had her hair pulled out.
Police found out the suspect was to stay away from her, but had been at the home drinking all day.
The 65 year old suspect from Innisfil turned himself in on Tuesday and was charged.
