The Complainant, being duly sworn, makes complaint to the above-named Court and states that there is probable cause to believe that the
Defendant committed the following offense(s). The complainant states that the following facts establish PROBABLE CAUSE:
Complainant, Andrew Rohde, of the Eden Prairie Police Department, has investigated the facts and circumstances
of this offense and believes the following establishes probable cause:
On October 22, 2011, at approximately 1:42 a.m., Eden Prairie Police were dispatched to a residence on Regency
Lane in the City of Eden Prairie, County of Hennepin, State of Minnesota in response to a domestic assault
complaint. Upon arrival, officers located Victim A (adult female fully identified in the police reports) sitting on the
living room floor. Officers observed that Victim A was crying, she was holding the right side of her head with her
hand, and her nose was bleeding. Victim A advised that she was assaulted and strangled by her boyfriend of ten
months, CHRISTOPHER OSHEA COOK, dob 2/15/87, the defendant herein. According to Victim A, the
defendant was upset that Victim A spoke to an ex-boyfriend. The defendant grabbed Victim A and swung her on a
bed. The defendant climbed on top of Victim A and grabbed Victim’s A’s neck with an open hand. The defendant
applied pressure to Victim A’s neck and constricted her ability to breathe. Victim A freed herself by grabbing the
defendant’s hair. When Victim A stood up, the defendant struck her in the ear causing Victim A to hit a wall.
Victim A fled to the living room. The defendant followed and again inhibited Victim A’s breathing by squeezing
her neck with his hand. Officers observed marks on Victim A’s neck and hemorrhaging in Victim A’s eye that is
consistent with strangulation. Victim A sought medical treatment for her injuries.
The defendant was taken into custody at the scene.
