Upon entering the room they found 57-year-old Steven Anthony lying on top of a female victim. Officers pulled Anthony off the victim and noticed the victim was in grave condition. Officers rendered medical treatment until REMSA arrived. The woman was transported to a local hospital for treatment where she is in critical condition.
Anthony was initially interviewed and released while detectives continued their investigation. On Thursday, detectives located and arrested Anthony for domestic battery, strangulation and false imprisonment. Anthony was booked into the Washoe County jail.
