A Brunswick County man has been arrested and charged with kidnapping and trying to strangle a woman.

Turner Chadwick Gray III, 30, 1701 Hideaway Road SW, Ocean Isle Beach, was charged Sunday with strangulation, second-degree kidnapping, interfering with emergency communication and communicating threats.

Gray injured the woman when he squeezed her neck and cut off her air supply, according to information on an arrest warrant. He also unlawfully confined and took her to another place without her consent.

The woman tried to call 911 on her cell phone, but Gray allegedly took the phone from her so she couldn’t make the call. He also told the victim he would kill her and her family, according to the warrant.

The incident was reported Sunday afternoon, Nov. 25, at an address on Cleek Court in Carolina Shores.

Late Tuesday, Gray was still in the Brunswick County Detention Center under $126,000 bond.
