An Idaho Falls man was arrested Wednesday night on charges of robbery and attempted strangulation.

Idaho Falls police said they arrived at the 2500 block of First Street at about 8 p.m. in response to a domestic disturbance, where they found a 40-year-old woman. The suspect, Jimmie Hyde, 42, had left.

Witnesses said Hyde and the woman had gotten into an argument while in a car and said Hyde punched and began to strangle the woman.

Police said Hyde then stole $200 from the woman and left. Officers found him passed out in the vehicle of a friend nearby.

Hyde was booked into the Bonneville County Jail.
