(RUSH CO.) - An Indianapolis firefighter was arrested in Rush County and charged with strangling and beating a woman in front of a young child on multiple occasions.

Landon Colip was arrested Friday. Colip is a firefighter with the Indianapolis Fire Department and has been employed with the department since July 2007.

According to Rush County Sheriff's Department, the alleged abuse began last year.

The victim told detectives the first incident was on November 12 when she was building a fence for two bulls on a farm and Colip got angry and "smacked her head" so hard that she hit the fence post. She said later that same day Colip pushed her to the ground and began "striking her in the head" with an open hand.

During another incident a month later, the victim told police that she was shoved roughly multiple times by Colip. She says he also pulled her up by her hair after she fell in the hog barn and struck her head. The victim provided video evidence of this encounter to police.

During two other incidents in January, the victim claims Colip got angry, once because she didn't pick up his prescriptions, and pushed her back against a counter and started strangling her as he said "nighty night."

Colip is charged with strangulation, domestic battery and intimidation.
