A woman has been hospitalized with what police are saying are "serious injuries" following a fight in the parking lot of a retailer in Herkimer, New York.

In a written statement police say they were called to Walmart early this morning, June 7, 2015, to investigate a call made to 911 during which the caller hung up.

When Herkimer Police arrived they say they were told that a man and woman were fighting in the parking lot.  According to the release, officers took Tiquan W. Gibbs into custody "(w)ith the assistance of two civilians."

  • assault (first degree, a felony)
  • criminal possession of a weapon (third degree, a felony)
  • strangulation (second degree, a felony)
  • unlawful imprisonment (first degree, a felony)
  • menacing (second degree, a misdemeanor)

There is no word as to any potential charges he will face from moving from his primary residence in Brooklyn without notification to, or permission, from the parole board.
