According to a criminal complaint, police were called Thursday night to an apartment building on McKnight Circle where Sadhra’s wife locked herself in a bathroom with her infant daughter.

Sadhra’s wife told police her husband “choked her with both hands to the point where she couldn’t breathe,” the complaint said. She also said this had happened before to her and she is now in fear for her life.

In September, Sadhra was charged with simple assault after video of the fight at a gas station in Pittsburgh's North Side went viral on social media. Sadhra was working at the gas station and has since been fired.
