Columbus man indicted for attempted murder
A Delaware County Grand Jury has indicted a man for attempted murder.
Thomas Agler, 39, is being charged after he reportedly attacked a Westerville woman after they went back to her house from a night out.
“The victim told law enforcement she was pushed to the ground, repeatedly hit with a closed fist, and strangled in the driveway of her home,” said Delaware County Prosecutor Carol O’Brien. “The pair ended up back in the car, and the victim jumped out in order to call police.”
Agler is also being charged with kidnapping, assault and theft. An arraignment date has not yet been set.
Agler is currently in the Delaware County Jail and his bond is set at $150,000.
