Police arrested a transient accused of attempted murder.

Officers from the Post Falls Police Department took Robert Gerald Davis, 44, into custody Thursday night.

A 54-year-old N. Idaho woman claimed that Davis tried to strangle her during a burglary. Officers said Davis entered the victim’s trailer on June 21 along S. 23rd Street and strangled her. A witness told police that Davis fled the apartment. 

Authorities said Davis and the victim are acquaintances, and he had been at her trailer earlier in the day. 

Davis was booked into the Kootenai County Jail.
