NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police arrested a man on Thursday after he allegedly assaulted the mother of his children during a yearly check-up.

The incident occurred at the Children's Medical Center located in the 3700 block of Central Pike.

The couple was at the facility for their child's one-year-old checkup.

The victim reported Deante Sloss became irate with her during an argument about an ex-girlfriend when he placed both of his hands around her neck, making it difficult for her to breathe.

The mother suffered small lacerations to the right side of her neck where the 20-year-old man's fingernails dug into her neck during the assault.

Sloss was booked into the Metro jail on a $3,500 bond for aggravated assault.
