Frank Patrick Aitasi, 31, was arrested by police this morning.

He was arrested on charges of attempted murder, first-degree robbery, strangulation, felonious restraint, third-degree aggravated assault, criminal trespass, theft and reckless conduct.

Aitasi allegedly struck a 61-year-old woman from behind while inside the Bejado's Barber Shop along Loretta Street on Thanksgiving Day.
