SCHENECTADY - A city man faces burglary and robbery counts, accused of breaking into the residence of someone he claimed owed him a debt and forcibly taking her debit card and choking her, authorities said.

Sylvester B. Moore, 35, of Elder Street, was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree burglary, second-degree robbery and second-degree strangulation, felonies.

Moore is accused of breaking into the woman's State Street apartment May 3, just after 7 a.m., according to police allegations filed in court. The break-in came as Moore claimed the woman owed him a debt, prosecutor Eamonn Neary said.

Once inside, he slammed the woman's head against a wooden door, causing cuts and scrapes, according to police allegations. He also held her down at one point, punched her and choked her to the point she suffered bruising, loss of breath and difficulty swallowing, police allege.

Moore was also charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony, and misdemeanor unlawful imprisonment, third-degree assault and resisting arrest.
